Setting Custom Functions

"I can't get anything to go on C2 or C3. I'm trying to set it up so C1 is 120 fps and 1/250 shutter, and set C2 to 24fps and 1/48 shutter speed. I can get C1 set but I can't get anything on C2, or to even get C2 to show up in the upper window showing that its enabled? Thanks in advance for any help."

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your question on how to set the custom functions on your Canon EOS 1Dx Mark II. That's a serious piece of technology and there's no reason you shouldn't be able to take advantage of using the custom settings on your 1Dx Mark II. It's hard to help through email and not being there in person. I'll assume you took the right steps and are hitting a roadblock.

Setting custom functions on the 1Dx Mark II


  • Using your 1Dx Mark II manual

  • Following the right steps in the right order

  • Recently Updated firmware


I'll suggest two more avenues to try for getting the custom functions to set the way you want on your 1Dx Mark II.

Try specific YouTube searches. You may have to do several different searches to find the right one.

Secondly, whenever I get stuck with an issue like this, I've found calling Canon directly can help. You just have to be a little persistent in finding one of the technicians who is familiar with the 1Dx Mark II.

Keep shooting your Canon!
