U1, u2, u3

Hello Guys,

Can you share what settings did you choose for these 3 positions: U1, U2 and U3?

Thanks!

My settings are designed to switch to flying birds, so it's a vairiety of starting points dealing with autofocus and aperture. It would be useless if I couldn't have continuous focus.

Can you give some more details?
I want to make something like U1 = fast (ISO fixed to 500, max aperture, AFC) U2 = very fast (ISO fixed to 1000, ...) and U3 = I don't know?!
Probably the front dial to be set for ISO.


So if I make some landscape pics on tripod I have enough time for the right settings, but if I see suddenly a bird or other animal I would like to change it to a fast setting immediatelly. But I am not sure which will fit me the best so I think its better to try some of your already tested setting.

u1 TAV center weight exposure, select center 27 point aF. U2 TV, same exposure and af. U3 spot focus spot AF. All at 1/800 auto iso, the TAV at f8. In Tv mode the back dial is exposure compensation.

Aside from those (such as birds-in-flight, and using flash) mentioned by other posters, I added one user mode for mounting m42 lenses which I will have shooting mode Av with auto-ISO and also, AF adjustment of -10 (this is important as my k-5 and k-5IIs are FF using manual focus). I also added another user mode for mounting k/m lenses which I will have shooting mode M and AF adjustment of -10 as well.

I need to switch quickly for bird photography so there are two settings one for flying birds and the other to use flash. As yet, I am not using U3

U1 - AV - F5.6, Autofocus AF S (RAW)
U2 - (for bird flash photography) X (180sec) F9.0, AF S, (RAW)
