According to the manual you can assign the M-Fn button to "Cycle between the set functions", from here you can use Info to open a sub-menu again and restrict the functions you cycle through, one of those functions is AF Drive.

Perfect! Thank you again! (For providing solutions to both of the things I was trying to solve.) I will set this up tomorrow morning and see how it works for me, but it seems like it will definitely provide a solution for what I was looking for which is to alleviate the left-hand from having to leave the lens to change the Drive mode. Now it will just require a push of the M-Fn button and a spin of the wheel. I will restrict it to just two drive modes, so changing modes will be a breeze.

The main reason I like to cycle back and forth is there are just times when leaving it in High-Speed Burst mode is just unnecessary as it burns through too many frames. Even though I use Photo Mechanic to cull images and it is fast, there sure are a lot of frames to go through from a morning and evening outing when you're out shooting every day!

Go toCustom Controls (C.Fn6) You can assign ONE-SHOT <-> AI SERVO to the DOF preview button or the Multi-function 2 button.

Thanks Coderunner for mentioning this, but ShadowHillsPhoto was correct, it was just the Drive mode I was referring to. You brought up a good solution though for quick-switching between One-Shot and AI-Servo. In my case, I use BBF and keep it in AI Servo all the time. All I have to do is lift my finger off BBF and then I am effectively in One-Shot mode at that point since focus is locked in.

Cheers to all...thanks for providing me with all of these ideas!

I just had Canon clean my 1DX2. It wasn't perfect when it came back (maybe half a dozen small spots near the edges), but it's much better than when I sent it in. It's also much better than the couple of times I tried to clean it myself.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Must be oil splatters, Ive cleaned mine a fair few times now, always the top left of the image that has the spots but I always clean my own, the cost alone here is too much to be sending it in as often as Id like.

Re: when you use back button focus and for example assign the * button to focus.
For moving subjects do you keep the button pushed in all the time while shooting, correct?
If you take your hand off the * button and re-compose (or not), how long do you stay in focus?
Do you only stay in focus as long as your red focus light remains lite?
Thanks

Mine came back last week too.
Still small spots left side edge.
No biggie but one would think Canon could get them all, with me
realizing that normal use will put some right back on.

Really enjoying using the 1Dx2 in studio. Just works so well. Doing these body scapes the ability to get this to lock is just fantastic. I dont have to find the highlight. It will easily lock in a shadow area

Yes, it was oil. I did two airshows last fall, and the sensor was pretty bad after both of them. I don't like cleaning the sensor myself, so I joined CPS Platinum this year. The maintenance service worked well. Canon paid shipping both ways. I sent the 1DX2 and a 70D on a Monday morning, and they were both back in my hands Thursday morning.
