  • Updating/adding to custom function

    I have the settings I use for BIF/action loaded to C3. I would like to add a couple of different settings to this. I'm confused after reading the manual (no surprise there). I've also looked in Darrell Young's book and still confused.

    My specific question: if I have my camera set to C3 on the dial, and then change the settings I want to change, how do I make them 'stick'? If I move the dial off of C3 they go away, but if I'm reading the manual correctly (big if) I can't write to C3 while I'm in C3. ??

    Do I have to save my new/improved settings somewhere first? Or do I need to do some switcheroo with another C?

    Any specific instructions much appreciated!

    Make you changes in C3 as you have.

    Just set them again using Reset/Custon Modes (Menu-1), Assign to Custom Mode, down to Custom Mode 3, and Set. Use the sideways arrow on the Ok button set to access those options.)

    It will overwrite your previous settings...

    Or if you want to keep the original setting, assign the new set to C2 or C1...

      Not quite right as that won't let you assign the mode and the shutter speed/aperture.

      Do the following to edit the C3 settings.
      1. Set mode dial to P A S or M depending on which mode you want C3 to give you. (Don't set the dial to C3.)
      2. Go into the menu and Recall from Custom Mode C3.
      3. Make the changes.
      4. Set the shutter speed/aperture to what you want stored.
      5. Go into the menu and Assign to Custom Mode C3.

        Yes agree that my method won't allow you to change the Mode (A S P)..

        Just confirm how you recall the Custom Mode x....

        Never done that before.....

            You asked the same thing in mu43 as well and got the same reply.
            Better to try one forum at a time, I almost wrote my reply twice.

              I didn't think it hurt to try more than one place. Sorry.
