Hi. I don't disagree with what you're saying.However, since the D90 doesn't have memory banks (ala D700) and you change the shooting environment from say; group faces shots to a bicycle race in twilight - it would be unwise to keep one set of settings resident in your D90.

Personally I would hit reset (to default) and then reset for motion and EV and maybe vivid.

While there isn't memory banks for personal preferences, Nikon has made average settings for night, motion , etc on the scenes dial. These settings may not be a lot different than what experienced photogs may suggest on a spreadsheet.

I'm all for learning. But it might be a good idea to learn more about the Nikon settings before trying to invent the wheel, it's easier.
