Custom (CSM) Menu
The Custom settings (CSM) Menu provides a wide range of settings which will allow you to configure the D1H to be a camera best suited to your shooting style. This provides a huge amount of flexibility over camera control.
The menus are navigated using the 4-way controller, up and down to select an option, right to confirm (or enter a sub-menu) and left to cancel or return to the previous menu. The FUNC button can also be used (it has the same function as pressing the 4-way controller to the right).
Notable improvement: Unlike the D1 the D1H (and D1x) now provide a full text driven menu system interface to custom settings, previously you'd have to memorize the CSM number (or use a cheat sheet) to change a setting. If you wish to or after you get used to them you can reassign the FUNC button to change custom settings without entering the menu system (the two letter combinations used to make these settings are indicated in below in the form X-Y).
| 0: Bank Select
| 1: Image Review
|Enables the creation of four groups of custom settings to enable easy switching between different scene types or photographers.||When set to Off images are only displayed if the user presses the monitor button, if set to On the image is displayed after the shutter release is pressed.|
| 2: EV Step
|Sets the steps used for exposure adjustment: shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, auto exposure bracketing.||Sets the auto exposure bracketing order.|
| 4: AF Activation
|Controls how autofocus is activated.||Delays exposure very slightly to avoid vibration from "mirror shock" (the mirror flipping up).|
| 6: Focus Area Select
| 7: AE Lock
|Allows selection of AF area to wrap around, for example with far right AF area selected pressing the right arrow will wrap around to the far left AF area.||Controls when auto exposure is locked, either only when the AE-L button is pressed or when the shutter-release is half-pressed.|
| 8: Mirror Lock-up
for CCD cleaning
| 9: Dynamic AF, Single-Servo
|Used to hold the mirror up to make it possible to clean the CCD.||Activate or deactivate closest subject priority when dynamic AF is used with single-servo AF.|
| 10: Dynamic AF,
| 11: AE / Flash Bracketing
|Activate or deactivate closest subject priority when dynamic AF is used with continuous-servo AF.||Controls whether flash exposure bracketing is used in conjunction with AE bracketing when performing auto exposure bracketing.|
| 12: Command Dial
| 13: Easy Exposure
|Allows the control of shutter speed and aperture to be switched between the main and sub command dials.||Allows exposure compensation to be made without pressing the +/- button, instead you can just roll the sub command dial (or main command dial in aperture or manual). These controls can be inverted by custom setting 12.|
| 14: Center Weight
| 15: Auto Meter-Off
|Set the size of the "greatest weight" circle used to calculate exposures when using center-weighted average metering.||Amount of time camera metering displays remain active after being "woken". Need longer? Read this 'engineering hack' on Rob Galbraith's website.|
| 16: Self-timer Delay
| 17: LCD Illumination
|Change the time delay in self-timer mode.||Have the LCD lamps ("illuminators") come on when any camera button is pressed (useful for shooting in the dark).|
Notable improvement: Four user memory banks instead of two.
