Cant change AF mode on Canon 600D.
« on: Apr 20, 2020, 12:13:17 »
I am probably doing something daft. I only use 600D for landscapes or I did set it up with BYE last week.

I cant change the AF mode and so cant get it to autofocus. have cleaned contacts and changed lenses, but cant figure it out. it is a  coincidence that I set it up to work with BYE and attempted to set up with APT, which will not work (have sent message to IVO but as yet no answer)
has anyone any clues. thanks

Fay
