Canon Playback Setting in Menu

I don’t know if this is a silly question as I am a beginner but is there a way to stop a preview showing every time you take a photo? I find it takes too long between images and you will end up missing moments you want to capture. I would much rather take photos and chose to look through them afterwards. Hope that makes sense? Thank you :)

Hi Hannah,

Your question about changing the setting for the length of time you'll see your photo on your Canon LCD screen is a great one!

How to Turn Your Canon Camera Automatic Playback Time Off

I don't know which Canon camera you have, but on both my Canon 5D Mark III and my Canon 90D, it's the same fix. The photo above shows you the "Image Review" selection in the menu of my Canon 5D Mark III. This is where you have the options to select the playback options. You'll go into your camera's menu, find the "Image Review" and select the "Off" choice.

This will essentially turn off the automatic showing of the photo you've just taken. Realize that your camera will still have to process as well as save the image to your memory card. You can also just push your shutter button down halfway and the playback image on your screen will disappear immediately as this action will put your Canon back into a ready-to-shoot mode.

Hannah, please leave a comment and let me know what camera you are using and if this works for you, or if you need additional assistance. It benefits all the readers of this website.

Thanks so much,
Bruce

Helpful tip!
by: Hannah

I have the EOS 250d (sl3) and I don’t think the settings are the same because I can’t seem to find it. However it’s super helpful knowing that half pressing the shutter will stop the playback quicker. So thank you for that tip!
