"U1/U2 settings"

Can anybody give me some ideas for settings on the above?

Just so that I can start to adjust and play with for myself?

Regards,

Simon

I'm still trying to come up with ideas myself.

For the time being, I've set U1 to be Manual mode plus the pop-up as Commander for a remote CLS with the Fn button doing Fv lock, and U2 to try out using the AF-AE hold button as an AF-ON button, plus some other minor different settings.

On the standard modes I've got the pop-up working as a classic flash, focus is achieved throuh the half-pressed shutter button, and the Fn button selects ADR modes.

I'll be watching this thread for some ideas.

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.
