T2 light calibration

Not a video question actually.
But when i want to take a indoor photo, the T2 calibrates the light environment, flashes couple of times, before the actual shoot.
This makes people doubting & uncertain if the picture is shot or not, this face-emotion can be seen later on the actual result/pic...not a nice one actually.

Any trick or solution?

Are you in auto mode? Try aperture or shutter priority, or even manual mode... Should work better!

It's trying to Focus. Select Manual focus to eliminate this.

I'm pretty sure I managed to turn this off and still have auto focus with available light. I think it might have been in the functions menu? I agree its a bloody pain in the arse.

Also the yellow light which would be of great benefit to focusing only comes on after the auto focus has locked on. Stupid!

A fast lens like f1.8 and lower will always help.
But to eliminate calibration flashes, do everything in manual mode (TV, AV and M) and turn on the life view (the video button). That way, you know how the photo is going to look before you snap it.
