If you're talking about the Scene Modes, no.

Scene Modes are simply combinations of different camera settings that, together, are appropriate for a particular type of subject or scene. P&S digicams have plenty of Scene Modes because they don't have a lot of easily accessible controls, or the users don't actually want to be bothered knowing what settings are appropriate for different things. dSLRs have easier access to controls for aperture, shutter speed, ISO, autofocus, etc., so, in general, they have fewer Scene Modes than P&S digicams do.

Hi yes you can its done via the eos utility. if you go to the canon web site then to the downloads for picture styles then it give the instructions there. You can down load for use on computer or even put the style on the camera

Hi as far as I can see you have 3 user defined styles. What I did was down load the lot and use them in pp, but since then I have got aperture 3 and I pp in that.
