How can I blink pixels that are over-exposured, on my brand new Canon 700D? I just can't find the setting for this.
On the top of page 272 in the manual for the 700D it says:
When the shooting information is displayed, any overexposed areas of the image will blink. To obtain more image detail in the overexposed areas, set the exposure compensation to a negative amount and shoot again.
Meaning switch to the shooting information display, by pressing INFO and you'll get the highlight alert.
On the Canon 700D/Rebel T5i, it is not possible to see the "Highlight Alert Blinks" in a full screen preview mode.
The User has to set the display to one of the histogram Modes where the histogram is displayed on the right and a small thumbnail preview with the flashing Highlights Alert is displayed on the left.
If you click through quickly, you can miss it.
On the 70D, you enable the Highlight Alert in the 2nd playback menu and get a full screen display when previewing.
