AE Lock

In the buttons menu there is a listing for AE Lock as the 3 listing what does this do that the AE/AF does not?


  • Please disregard. I did finally find an answer. Thanks
  • Just a note for those who read this and might not have found the answer:

    If you use back button focus, it takes the AE lock function away from the AE/AF button, and assigning it to the shutter button half-press is the only way it can be re-enabled.

  • Thanks, good to know.
