    Hi Sunuwar and welcome to CiC! Like many things in photography, this is a personal choice. Although I shoot Nikon, I have the equivalent of this feature turned on.

    I would suggest looking at the description and sample images at the following link, then choose one or more scenes and shoot them both with the Auto Lighting Optimizer on and off. You can then compare the results and decide which way you like it best.

    You may find that some scenes are better with it on and others may be better with it off so it is best to try it both ways on different scenes. Hope this helps!

    Hi Sunuwar. One other thing to bear in mind is that Auto Lighting Optimiser only really has an effect on jpeg files generated in the camera. If you shoot RAW, it wont affect anything. However the Digital Photo Professional software that comes with a Canon DSLR has an Auto Lighting Optimiser built into it and you can apply that to the RAW file during pp if you wish.
