While not necessarily an easy read for everyone; The 580exII manual covers all the functions, custom functions, modes and adjustments.

Is there something specific you are looking for?

There is a photocopied .pdf file loose on the net somewhere. I don't recall where I located it.

There are 13 custom functions.
0 - distance indicator display; 0=meters, 1-feet
1 - auto power off; 0=enable, 1=disabled
2 - modeling flash; 0=enabled(dof preview button), 1=enabled(test firing button), 3=disabled
3 - FEB auto cancel; 0=enabled, 1=disabled
4 - FEB sequence; 0=0,-,+ 1= -,0,+
5 - flash metering mode; 0=E-TTl II/E-TTL, 1=TTL, 2=External metering: Auto, 3=External metering: Manual
6 - quickflash with continuous shot; 0=disabled, 1=enabled
7 - test firing with autoflash; 0=1/32 power, 1=full output
8 - AF assist beam firing; 0=enabled, 1=disabled
9 - Auto zoom for sensor size; 0=enable, 1=disabled
10 - slave auto power off timer; 0=50 minutes, 1= 10 minutes
11 - slave auto power off cancel; 0=within 8 hours, 1=within 1 hour
12 - flash recycle with external power source; 0=flash and external power, 1=external power source
13 - Flash exposure metering setting; 0=speedlite button and dial, 1=speedlite dial only

To bring up the C-fn. menu press and hold the LCD panel illuminator/C-fn. button for 2 seconds.

C-fn 5-2 can be used with the 1D Mk III. Others usually require C-fn. 5-3 when not using C-fn. 5-0.

Hope this helps.
