Maintain settings between modes

Is there a setting in the menu where I can maintain a specific set of parameters between modes.

I shoot sporting events where I toggle between still images and video on the same body.

So, for example when shooting surfing I shoot the stills with the following settings:

ISO 200, 1/1250 and f 6.3

When I shoot video under the same lighting conditions I will set the camera at...

ISO 100, 1/320 and f9

When I toggle between modes,  the settings revert back to a generic default, in which it doesn't remember what I had set previously.

Out in the field this is very annoying. I would like to be able to toggle between the modes and not have to set the parameters every time.

Any advice would be great!
