Hello,

I just finished creating the D700 Custom Settings Spreadsheet; however, I'm not sure how to attach / upload it.

Please let me know, or send me an email me and I'll respond with the attachment for posting.

My email address is my Nikonian Username @ gmail.com

Cheers,

That was a mouthwatering first post. Pity no one seems to know how to add a spreadsheet attachment to a message for everyone to look at.

Thanks Hassam for such a great idea and for your effort.

Hopefully we'll be able to have a look and comment on your hard work.

Hi Hussam,

Many thanks for this brilliant work and to Donald for posting it on his (GREAT) website.

I'll just go and study it now and will practice, practice and practice.

Best regards

P.S. Spreadsheet opened directly without a need for the password.

Hi FreddyNoel,

If you want to change the Shooting Bank names (and possibly certain other fields as well) in the spreadsheet, you'll need the password.


Thanks, Donald and Hussam!

Thanks for the spreadsheet.  Have now had my d700 for 2 days,
so am still trying to get through the manual.  Your
spreadsheet will be a great help.

Thanks.

Thanks so much, Donald and Hussam. I made constant use of the spreadsheet for the D200-this will be my salvation (just ordered my D700).

I will sound dumb - but can you please explain why and how you would use this spreadsheet? Sorry I am a beginner and new to digital and D700.

Hello,

Ken Rockwell puts it this way:

"Menu banks seem like memories, but they aren't. You can't save or recall them. All they do is return you the settings you had when you last changed to another one.

For instance, if you change things in A, and go to B, you'll be in whatever settings you last had when you were in B. If you change some things and go back to A, you'll be back where you were when you left A. If you go back to B, you'll be where you were when you last left B.

There is no way to lock or save these. The best way to deal with them is consciously make an effort to shift into each as you enter an assignment to which they apply, and deliberately change out of them when you're done that assignment."

--http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d700/users-guide/menus-shooting.htm

I believe it's a un-practical design. Occasionally, I'd like to got back to base point for my settings. While I use Save/Load camera settings occasionally, I'd like settings to be written down for comparison purposes and my own sanity.

This spreadsheet provides a medium for you to record your preferred settings (and possibly print them).

How to use it? Just open the spreadsheet and navigate through the different tabs. It's self explanatory. Give it a try!

Don't spend too much time fiddling with the spreadsheet. You're better off just shooting away and enjoying your camera.

Good luck!

Thanks for the spread sheet,it gave me a basis from which to start on my then new D700.

With type of shooting I do I have made adjustment in my banks. But I always keep "A" bank as a wildcard bank, for unique situations. When finished with the unique situation in A bank, I hit reset to default. Hell, I figure Nikon's defaults aren't that bad.

Dear Nikonians,

I've sent out the Custom Settings Spreadsheets to hundreds of Nikonians (quite literally).

Now I'm hoping that one of you could take the spreadsheet and attach it to a message.

Appreciate your help.

Dear folks,

Gee, it must be getting close to the holidays! All of a sudden, after weeks of no action at all, there's a run on the Spreadsheet for the Awesome New Toy!!!!

A few days ago I asked Hassan to send me the spreadsheet in exchange for my promise to get it up and accessible. With the holidays, I promised him it will be up within a week. I now have it, so you can look for it somewhere on this forum by New Year's. So we can all stop hassling him ...

Okay, folks, I've given it a shot. I've tried to post Hqasem's D700 spreadsheet.

This is my first try, and I'm just learning how to make webpages, so there are bound to be mistakes. If you find any (in the webpage or in the spreadsheet itself), in particular broken links, etc., please send me a PM so that I can try to fix it.

I hope it works!!! And in the meantime, thanks again Hqasem!!!
