    "C" modes do not record the values of:
    • Aperture
    • Shutter speed
    • Focus mode/MF dist
    • Burst mode
    • Timer
    How do you do this?

    Ok, try this:

    Switch to M-mode
    Record your current settings in C1.
    Now change your aperture and shutter settings.
    Now turn to C1-mode, and you will see that the camera did not record your previews setting.

    Weird hein? Is it my camera that is sick?

    When in 'C' modes the camera will remember the mode ( ie: aperture priority or shutter priority) but not the actual aperture or shutter value - that will be the same as when you turned off the camera...

    Focus mode, burst mode and timer are all physical levers, so they will be set to whatever the lever is set to... The actual specific setting (ie: timer @ 2"'or 10") will be remembered in the 'C' mode.

    Hope this helps...

    Yes, I notice that but there is no reason for them not to be recorded right?!
    Its really annoying to have to set up correct exposure values before shooting.
    I miss Canon :(

    I'm confused. Unless you shooting precisely the same scene every time, you're going to have to change the exposure anyway... Thats why cameras have adjustable exposure...

    If you don't want to set up correct exposure before each shot perhaps set C1 to 'Auto'?
