      It sounds like you’re in one of the auto settings. Purple text that you can’t select on the menu tpyically means Canon is saying "This is a feature we don’t trust you to configure, so we’ll do it for you!"

      Don’t worry, if the option is purple, it’s in it’s default, which is turned on. So it’s actually already there.

      From one GL-2 Owner to another, get to know your camera. The first thing I did when I bought my first GL-2 was to plug it in and read the whole manual. Yeah, it looks like a big task, but the truth is that 80% of the manual are the other languages. If you only read the English version, you’ll be through it in an hour, and that’ with playing with the camera while reading.

      I feel your pain. When I got my first GL-2, my male gene was fighting me hard to forget about the Manual and start playing ๐Ÿ™‚

      However, reading the manual was a super smart move. Life would have been slow and painful without it.

      Also, if you’re relatively new to videography, look up online tutorials about it. When people stat talking all their technical video terms, it’s easy to feel lost if you don’t know what they’re talking about. You can also ask for answers here. We don’t bite…much! ๐Ÿ˜€
