    Does anyone know if there is a shortcut to get to custom settings (CS) e3, flash control. I am trying to use the built in flash as commander and 2 external speedlites. This works, but each time I want to adjust the output of the speedlites on camera I have to cycle through the menus, or failing that go to each speedlite and adjust in turn

    I'm sure there is a way you can reassign buttons on the camera for functions you regularly use. Not sure without checking the book though, how to do it.

    I can reassign the commander mode to 'my menu', but this only saves a few steps. Don't seem to be able to assign commander mode to a function button or similar

    I tried and there does not seem to be a way to assign it to the function button although, as you say, the "My Menu" route does work. Pressing the menu button and then the rocker button right a couple of times gets you back but is even slower than "My Menu".

    Can you not assign CS Item you require as the top item in my menu, and then assign the fn button to launch the top item? No time to check the manuals at the moment, but I Seem to remember something along those lines is possible.
