    im guessing you would load a pic up from pc to camera then use that pic as the background

    Well there is a little more to it then that. First i think the images for the camera are 96bit or somthing. I had to convert it using adobe. Then you load it into the zoombrowser folder and name it similar to the names they used.

    You use the zoombrowser and then you select the "set to camera" option. There are 3 selections for each. Startup screen has 3 to chose, shutter sound etc. You can customize 2 the others you cant remove or change.

    They have some sounds that are loaded in off the disk for the shutter that sound really cool. The one i use on all my cameras is called EOS_1_LIKE it has a neat shutter sound with a little motor sound mixed in there also.

    I use this chicken sound for my timmer, it always makes people laugh wich helps for a good shot. I say "ok say cheese" then hit the timmer and you hear

    That chicken Idea is pretty funny, I think that ill set my camera to that too. Right now im using the tropical theme which is not default on the camera, but comes in that extra list on the computers. It has sounds of waves and other "tropical" sounds. As for custom boot screens, Im pretty good in photoshop, because I do webdesign, but I guess I could make a few, just to try.
