I'm a fairly good amateur photographer; I have a Canon 7D, and my main-use lens is a 24-70L. I take photos mostly of my 2-year old son, and friend / family photos, plus 'events' from my volunteer activities as an EMT.
The Canon 7D has settings C1, C2, and C3 on the mode-select dial. I've really never gotten into the Custom Settings. I know, for example, I can change the Auto Focus from the half-way select of the shutter release button to a back button.
But the 'Why' of most of the Custom Functions still evades me, even after reading the Canon manual.
So, I'm coming to you for help!! What are the Custom Functions that are most useful (to you, that you'd recommend to me)?
Also, are they 'Global settings', or just for a C1, C2 or C3? So, would I want to 'Globally' set my auto-focus to a back button, or only under, say, C1 and C2, so I can get back to half-way down on the Shutter Release for C3?
Also, there are different types of photography --- so, would I want to set C1, C2 and C3 for specific Day / Action photography, Night / Flash photography, and Video use?
Thanks in Advance!!
