Attached is the latest, and I think the final, version of the D300 custom settings Excel spreadsheet. Minor errors and inconsistencies have been fixed. I have also laid out the custom banks for Point & Shoot, Landscape, Portrait, and Sports activities, which seem to be the most common uses requested.
I’ve tried to be thoughtful about the settings I have chosen to illustrate these modes, but the ultimate purpose of the spreadsheet is to help you to learn the camera and to make it your own. Please take these settings only as a starting point to help you personalize the camera so that it reflects how you use it. They are there to get you started using some of the amazing capabilities of the D300.
For those of you who want to see another take on how the custom banks can be used, I’ve attached a copy of my current personal settings in the second post in this thread. My personal settings tend to change with the weather and what I’m doing/interested in at the moment, so take them with a grain of salt.
For those who prefer it in French, the third post has a copy graciously translated by Michel Renaud (many thanks).
