Hi. Thanks Eric. I often check both the Histogram and the Blinkies also and frequently have to correct for those small blown highlights with negative exposure compensation .... )) I do understand that there is no "one setting fits all" because every range of light, every subject balance and every situation is different. My initial camera settings are a "starting Point" subject to change after analysis when there is time. I frequently start with -.3 to -.7.

Having said that, the bears are coming out of hibernation up here. I have to be prepared to grab the camera off the wood stove and start shooting ... so, I am set in Aperture Priority mode, F8, ISO640, Matrix and -.3 exposure compensation. I have found that in that grab and shoot situation I am most likely to get a good usable exposure. My initial setup for Live View Landscapes is, of course, completely different and is as I stated above.
