I'm familiarizing myself with a new A720 IS. This is not my 1st digital camera. I am reading the manual and becoming familiar with the controls and menu options and something has me stumped.

There is a menu option called "Display Overlays" and it is used to display grid lines and/or a 3:2 overlay.

I am pretty sure I tried every setting on the Mode dial and I cannot get access to that menu option. It's always grayed out and not selectable. ???

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Hector

Hector, I just copied and pasted this from Steve's review of the A 720 is. Similar to my A 560, in some shooting modes, the menu item in question is not accessible. If you still cannot access the grid line/ overlay item in one of the named dial modes, then I would suspect a faulty camera. Robert


Program AE, Tv, Av and Manual mode MENU options:

    Thanks Robert.

    I was playing with the camera some more and I picked the menu option that "resets to default" and after I did that I was able to access the Display overlay option. At least that's all I think I did. For now everything seems OK so maybe it was a fluke or new user error. I will see how things go.

    Thank you for your help.
