Canon R5/R6 – Best Customizations & Shortcuts for Beginners – Part 1

2 min read

I had a several students ask about which customizations and shortcuts they should know about their Canon R6 and R5, the good news is these cameras operate nearly identical and I am demonstrating on the R6 in this video.

For pure beginners, watch the free tutorial below and focus on getting accustomed to your camera, the controls, and basic settings. Don’t worry about customizations too much right now, though I will say direct selection is worth doing from the start. Once you have a good grasp on the basics, you will want to customize how your camera will operate in the best way for you.

I will continue to make videos from those of you who have good questions, so be sure to check out our Facebook group! (link below).
