Welcome to Nikonians!
Congratulations on your ne F5.
It has been a long time since I went thru the custom settings menu on my F5 so I could not tell you with any degree of accuracy.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

The custom settings I use most of the time are: 8-1 enabled auto film loading when camera back is closed, 14-1 for 8mm diameter center weighted metering, 15-1 for 4 second time delay for meter switch off, 16-1 for 2 seconds self timer (for still-lifes indoors!) and 19-1 for prolonged shutter speed enabled (for still lifes and night photography). I always keep extra alkaline batteries on hand. Enjoy your F5!
