Thank you for the effort.

I'm curious how people manage their default settings, other than on paper (i.e. excel).

What I've always wanted since my first camera with shooting banks is a way to save in the bank settings, and then recall them when needed. E.g.

- Call up my "sports" setting
- Shoot, change settings, etc.
- (Time passes, maybe I do other things)
- Call up my "Sports" setting and get the same original settings

The problem is that the camera does not use these as a place to save settings so much as a working area. When you are "in" bank A, any changes are saved in bank A becoming the new normal. So if after my sports shoot I go inside, change some settings but forget I am on "sports" bank, I just polluted my "sports" bank.

If I save to CF card they just disappear every time I change cards or format.

I tried using a separate CF card just for savings, but that lasted through one use -- too much hassle.

To me what would be preferable was a "load from bank" and "save to bank" option, and the camera was always "working". Then I could "load from bank Sport" and do whatever I wanted, and know what I last saved in "Sport" is still there.

Then I could take this spreadsheet and carefully configure it, save it in a bank, and I'm ready to go.

How to real photographers use banks, and avoid polluting them with changes? Or maybe more on topic, people using these spreadsheets -- do they just carry paper along as a checklist? (eventually perhaps committed to memory)?

Ps. With the D800 and two cards, I may now have a bit more luck with "load from" and "save to" cards as an alternative, if I can remember not to format the other card.
