What do you use for your custom presets (C1-C3)?

I use C1 for static things:

  • aperture priority
  • single, centre AF point
  • single AF drive (for focus and re-compose)
  • single exposure per shutter press
  • minimum shutter speed of 1/125 
  • max auto iso 800

And C2 for people and motion:

  • aperture priority
  • Continuous Focus AI with centre starting point
  • multiple exposures per shutter press
  • minimum shutter speed 1/250 
  • max auto iso 12500 (max for 5DS R)

I haven't found a good use for C3 though. I've tried some tripod settings like mirror lockup and 2-second timer etc, but usually if I'm being that deliberate I'm setting everything manually anyways (and I'm not in a hurry).

So what do you use your C1-C3 presets for that might be interesting?
