Isn't there a 2-button command that instantly resets EC factors to 0? Can't find it in the book.

Last month at a picnic I went astray with my new D7000. Among other preparations I failed to make, I had exposure compensation figures set on the camera. The pictures turned out like mud. Low resolution mud.

Along with my question, I'd like to share the following from the D7000 Tips blog on another forum. This came as a response to wondering if there were a shooting checklist, perhaps even plasticized, to throw in my bag to prevent further disasters. Here is what the host of the blog, Granpaw, came up with. I have not examined or verified his thoughts. So, buyer beware. Don't you just love the way the Internet allows one to spread groundless propaganda and conspiracy theories? You can add or subtract other pertinent precautions.

Here they are:


Is my white balance where I will want it
How about that ISO setting
Is you EV compensation set back to normal
Shutter speed not set to very high or very slow speed from last use
If you shoot in Aperture priority, is the F-stop what you want it set on for shooting today?
Image quality set? Raw, JPEG fine, normal, basic
Auto focus set how you want it
Matrix, spot or center weighted OK?
What is the flash set on and is it set on what you will be needing
batteries charged and ready to go and in the camera enough memory to do the job
Is the lens clean and free of dust and smudges and extra lens cloths with you
If you are new to the camera or photography, do you need the manual
