Change what dial sets Apertures on the 5DM3?
« on: April 06, 2012, 02:47:07 PM »
Does anyone know if there is a way to switch the dials for aperture and shutter speed? My old 5D has shutter speed on the top dial and aperture on the rear dial, my 5dm3 has it just the opposite. Id like to have the same settings for that. The 1dm3 has it either way i want it.

I have read this manual over and over and forget this new settings option. It is in fact on page 321 in the manual. HAPPY!
I was looking at the pages relating to the dials but that page number wasn't listed.

Yes, you can control which does Tv or av.  Go to C.Fn2 and select custom controls.  Then select the control you want to change.

Thanks Brotha, someone helped me from another forum so i shared the info of how i found that setting. I pretty much have slept with this camera and still i forget this setting, it should be on the top of the menu in my opinion. Like i said i was consulting the manual and specifically researching the dials and nothing comes up about custom functions...
