I am pulling my hair out trying to figure what is going on with my C1, C2, C3 setup. I have no issue setting C1 but when I set C2 and C3 they are still greyed out when I go to modes and try to change to them. Using latest firmware. Anyone had this issue?

Sorted it -


Orange menu (CFn)
Page 3
1st item - restrict shooting modes
--> enable C2, C3


No idea why these were not enabled in the first place

The factory default is that only C1 is enabled. If you don't use them, there's no point in having them available. If you use one, and then want another one, enable it to provide access.
Makes sense. The only thing that's slightly doubtful is why C1 is enabled to begin with. But probably to encourage use of this feature.

I do a lot of video work - One thing that really bugs me is that you can't set 3 presets for video and then switch into photo and have three different presets. The settings just stay the same. Is there anyway to change this??

Not by just using the Cx setups. The camera consider them setups, and then it's up to you to use them for video, still photography or whatever.
If you have time to do it, you can do like this:


  1. Create three custom setups for still photography.
  2. Store the camera setup on your memory card as PHOTO.
  3. Create three custom setups for video photography.
  4. Store this camera setup on your memory card as VIDEO.

Now you can reload either PHOTO or VIDEO from the card, as you like. But it takes more time than just switch from C1 to C2, of course. Note that this will not work if you belong to the group who thinks you have to reformat the card after each shooting, as you'll loose the settings if you do that.

Thanks Anders for the tip. Although, it's not ideal. You can see my point right? Surely they could set them up differently in video and photo - Canon oversight.

Well, at least in the 1DX Mark II this makes more sense, since it has a hardware switch for photo/video selection.
