AF5 menu option 3, VF display illumination, press set, then Q, then set it to Illuminated. But yes, I have menu item 2 set to selected/constant, but it flashes in servo with other settings there (pre focus, etc.,) except off.
Actually, with display during focus set to off but servo illumination on, the red light flashes anyway, but no points are illuminated. That seems wrong, although that may be intentional, Canon might think we want the grid display to flash or something...
Neuro, It does seem strange to me that it was not working with my original settings, BUT it now is having reset them back just out if interest.
Thank you for your help Neuro. I did not know re the pushing the Q button gave other options, but it was already set to illuminated (normal). Maybe I set it when I originally got the camera? ( I do read the manuals quite throughly when I first get hold of a new camera, but being 66 my memory is not that good any more. (senior moments) .
kind regards Chris
