I have been a long time Canon 7d user and I have just taken the plunge and bought a D500, 300mm pf and 1.4 converter. I am a birder and walkabout bird photographer. On my Canon I switched between two user defined presets, one for terrestrial birds and one for birds in flight. I had it on the terrestrial settings and switched quickly to the bif settings if I see something interesting flying over.
I did my homework enough to know that the D500 does not have U1/U2 like the D7200 but I figured that the settings banks would be configurable to do what I wanted.
I've now had the camera for a day and on top of the effort of "de-Canoning" my aging brain in relation to the layout and controls, I am getting truly puzzled about how to set it up.
So for the sake of my sanity, could someone talk me through how to set up the D500 so that I can switch from shutter priority, single point af, auto iso to manual, area af, fixed iso with the minimum of button presses/dial turns? It was one dial turn on my Canon.
