View Full Version : T2I questions- settings, etc.

Just got my T2i (now have gh1 and t2i). I've gotten pretty far optimizing the camera, adding flat picture styles, etc. But there are a few things that confuse me.

First, should I enable or disable "Peripheral Illumination Correction"? I have a lens that it works for, but can't see how it would work in movie mode since for stills you can tweak the effect in post- what confuses me is that the menu option IS available in movie mode, and on this camera it only seems to list relevant menu settings for the mode you are on.

I assume I should turn off Highlight Tone Priority and Auto Lighting Optimizer?

Is there no way to change the Metering while in movie mode? I don't seem to be able use a spot meter like I can while in stills mode. This seems silly, and I don't think is an issue with the 7D but I'm not 100% on that.

Is there a way to look through the view finder while in movie mode or is it just the LCD?
