Digital Features & Controls
As noted previously, the 10D is comprised of two sections, the camera with the exposure controls and the digital imaging section. Here's the color LCD and the control buttons for the digital half of the 10D.
Menus are navigated by turning the large Quick Selection Dial. You accept menu selections by pressing the SET button in the center. Using custom functions the SET button can also perform other tasks. The On/Off switch (above the dial) allows the quick selection dial to be used to make changes to the camera section options when the menu is not displayed. The (Delete) button is for erasing images. The lower On/Off switch turns the camera power on and off.
Pressing the (Index-Reduce) button displays a 9-thumbnail preview index so you can quickly select an image to display. Press the (Enlarge) button to select an index image for full-screen display, press it again to go into Zoom-Playback mode. Each time you press the button the image is magnified more until you reach the maximum of 10x.

that fills the center circle on the viewfinder. When you select the Custom WB option

temperature. You can keep these pictures and use them later if you work in the
same lighting conditions frequently.
You can create 3 sets of parameters with any combination of contrast, sharpness,
saturation and color tone adjustments and then recall them when desired. Each of
these parameters have settings for -2, -1, 0, +1, +2.
