I'm still a 1D X newbie, but so far the only thing I wish it had was the ability to switch CF cards with the "Q" button like you can do with the 5DIII. Having to dig through the menus to swap cards is pretty annoying. There may be a way to fix this (other than adding it to My Menu), and I'll post it if I figure it out...
Use the Card/Image Size button. By default, that setting uses the rear LCD panel (the little one at the bottom, next to the button) to change what's recorded to each card and at what quality, and which card is used for playback. You can use C.Fn4 to change that so the main LCD display shows the setting information (it's the same menu you get on the 5DIII, I think).
Thanks! I knew there had to be some way to do it, and of course you had the answer
. That was really frustrating me so I really appreciate the help.
My next challenge - calibrating my lenses with FoCal in Manual mode. Since my RC-1 won't work with it and my Canon RS-80N3 never worked (but Canon gladly charged me $200 to replace the socket in my 5DII
), I tried focusing and tripping the shutter by hand. I ended up with results that were either Poor, Acceptable, or Excellent. I think I'll get a cheap Fotodiox remote this time, but I might give the EOS Utility and "Quick Focus" a shot in the meantime.
Back to the thread, how about HDR like the 5DIII? I haven't played with it too much, but after seeing some of Arthur Morris' work and this article on the CPN blog by Gary Schmid
, I'm going to give it a try next time I'm in a situation like that.
