Like the AEL setting, this is also exactly the same way as the SX240 works. In Av mode, the wheel on the back of the camera (the stepped ring around the lens of the G1X2) controls aperture, in Tv mode it controls shutter speed and in Manual mode you switch between controlling aperture or shutter speed by pushing at the top of the wheel.

Nice & Easy


I have to think it works that way. I hope the OP simply got a little discombobulated on that point.

You can set it that way if that's what you want. You still have the problem of assigning three existing wheels to control more than three values. In my mind, one of the three controls, the un-clicked Step Ring, is not optimal for controlling anything but focus.
