I use U1 as my "people who do not know cameras" setting. Most settings are same as my "normal" selection, but shutter both 1/2 press to focus/select exposure & shoot (usually I have set the AE-AL button for focus) and I use the full 39 focus points (usually I use single or D-9). Auto Flash is enabled and Auto ISO (limited to 100-3200). Camera selects aperture and shutter speed.

U2 is my "sunset" setting. My WB is skewed to emphasize red, orange, yellow. Auto ISO limited to 100-2000 to make sure noise is not present in the blues and greens. AF-C, release, S. Aperture f5.6 (I usually shoot on a tripod). Remote shutter release, mirror up/ timed to 2 seconds (for additional insurance against camera shake). Don't have camera with me at present, but I have some other settings aimed for this type of shot.

I am pleased to have these "banks". I have not done so, but I read that there is a way to "save" these to an SD card, and in effect have more than just 2 banks, but you'd have to "re-save" each time you want to use a particular bank.
