5dm3 custom shooting modes useless?
« on: July 31, 2012, 07:00:38 PM »
Why? Because anything that gets changed while in a custom mode, say a focus point, reverts to the registered value when the body goes in to sleep mode. Hope that's something that can be remedied in firmware...

It's been remedied - at this point, the problem is with the wetware.  :P  There's a setting to automatically update the camera user settings. 

Here's a hint - try p.332 of the manual.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Thanks for the info! (Took me a few seconds to understand the term "wetware"...)

Alternate term might be PEBKAC, although we might need to modify that to be PEBC (not as catchy or easy to say though...)
