Panasonic users - what do you have set on your C1, C2 and C3 settings?

As per the subject line, thought it might be interesting to hear what custom settings you have on your mode dial C1, C2 and C3 positions.

I've customised my function buttons but have yet to put anything specific under the custom modes.

The panny bodies that I owned only offers me C1 and C2 and I have:

C1 for Ex Tel Conv On and Picture size at Ex 4:3 M for a quick in-camera tele converter when I need a longer reach but have no time to change my lens;

C2 for S mode (as I always shoot in M or A mode in case of legacy lens) when in camera flash/external flash is used. No matter what S speed is used from the previous mode, it will automatically be set at the bodies's highest syn speed (in case if the S speed in used in the previous mode is higher), and from there, it saves time to reach a slower speed if wanted.

On my G6, C1 is a tripod setting:  low ISO, IS off, shutter delay.

C2.1 is a bracketing setting, A-priority with I think 5 shots at +2, +1, 0, -1, and -2.

Haven't filled up C2.2 and C2.3 yet.
