Guide updated in February 2014

http://www.learn.usa.canon.com/resources/articles/2012/1dx_guidebook.shtml

Will anything similar trickle down to the 5D3? Somehow, I don't think so ... I could use Auto-ISO with EC in manual mode  :'( :'(
5D3, 6D, 600D, RX100
16-35L, 24-70L II, 70-200L II, 100-400L, 50L, 85L II, 135L, 24TSE, 40, 100 macro, 18-55 II, 55-250 II, 600RT x 4
I come here to learn something new, not to learn how bad my gear is - I know that already ;-)!

The new guidebook doesn't print well as a booklet, even if you have a duplex printer. Not much you can do if you only have Acrobat Reader, but I used Acrobat Pro 8 to look at the file. It turned out they had put page 56 first in the file, not last, and that made my printer utterly confused. I just removed page 56, from its position before page 1, and then the file printed nicely as a booklet. It's one page short now, but the printer driver just fills in that last page with a blank, which it was supposed to be anyway.

This is just for you who perhaps want to print this file as a booklet. Now you know what to do.

A good reminder to finally dig into the Servo customisation features of the 1DX; I quickly got comfortable with everything else the 1DX offers, but that's ... one heck of a large subject and coming from the 5D2 I still lack a lot of experience with advanced AF!
