Now that I think of it, surprising that they don't use computer-generated renderings.

Always-available model!I'd start by getting a girlfriend.That's the last thing any photographer needs!!!
The first is possible now. Av mode, and Custom Controls to switch the QCD to ISO (see p. 341). With that, ISO is set during metering only. With that setting in M mode, you set aperture/shutter when metering is inactive, and once you start metering you can adjust ISO.
- Give ISO the same importance as time and aperture (e.g. put aperture on one wheel, iso on the other, and time in auto).
- Sometimes I want to simply change a custom-mode from e.g. Tv to M or similar, which doesn't seem possible (please correct me if I'm wrong).
You can't change the base mode of a C# setting. Canon could fix that for the 1D X, it seems to be a legacy of having a mode dial (the 1D X is the first to have C# settings and no mode dial).
What would you like to see added to Canon's next firmware update for the 1D X?Yes, that with the menu would be nice, too. In general the possibilities with the 1DX are much better than what I was used to, but there is obviously still much room for improvement...
I would like more than 6 choices in the My Menu. Even just 2 extra would be nice as I do find the My menu quite useful.
Why on earth would the vast majority of Rebel owners want AFMA ?That's why the firmware should be able to automatically perform AFMA at the press of a button, using contrast-detect to calibrate phase-detect, it's not rocket science...
Are they going to be shooting with 200 Ls at f2 ?
AFMA is extremely tricky to use properly and easy to b*****k up your AF.
Yes thats right
Hmmmm.... I suspect we'll see an official word from FoCal why this method doesn't work so good and we will all read it and collectively say "nice try, bye bye".Sorry to be cynical, but we live in a day and age where people and companies with any kind of commercial interest are known to tell a lot of lies and even defend them in court if it means that they can, well, maximise profit. They might of course really have something, but anything they say will have to be double checked. And although I'll have to do some more tests, as I wrote above, double checking this new method the other day indicated that it was spot on for me.
