"what settings do you usually change?"


US
          

with the hundreds + of settings available (and going through Darrells' book to figure them all out), what settings, aside from shutter speed and aperature, do you usually change?

Thanks... Steve

That's an interesting question, but one that can have many different answers depending on the photographer's individual style and types of subjects and personal preferences.

I often change up exposure modes (usually, M, A, or S); metering patterns (matrix, center, or spot); ISO settings (either manual or auto enabled); focus settings (depending on moving or non-moving subjects); and, release mode (single, CL, MUP, etc.)

I usually don't change Picture Control setting much as I shoot RAW and leave PCs in mostly neutral settings.

I would have typed up a response, but I see Kent typed one up for me.

I pretty much echo what Kent does.

Ditto.

I have Exposure Delay mode programmed as the top My Menu item so I can have it on the front function button (I did that on the D90). But with real MUP I'm not sure I'll use the delay feature so much any more.

I LEAVE the Picture Control color on Standard, but I boosted the sharpening to 6. It's set VERY conservatively at the factory.
