Recomended user setting/custom settings on D7100
5 months ago

Hello,

In my previous D70 and D80, I made some custom settings, which I do not really remember more what was I have not made as many custom settings in D90.

Now I have a D7100  coming next week. Can you recommend some daily custom settings for D7100?

Thanks in advance

As I think I understand it, user settings are a great feature and with the right pre-selection of preferences in either of the U1/U2 positions  are useful for storing the most commonly required settings., allowing your most frequently used set-up to be selected. IE. If you shoot two different themes regularly namely action sports and weddings, the presets save a lot of hassle going thru the settings menu when switching between shooting styles. (I may be wrong however):-D

For D70, D80 I think I set something like EV, Saturation, Sharpness, Contrast .... and so on. D90 I remember I only set EV to ex. +0,3 or was it -0,3 ... I can't remember

Any recommendation for D7100?

You will never get an accurate and unbiased answer to this question, because everyone has their needs and preferences. Better to just read, try it, read more, try it more. A logical and thorough understanding of what things actually do, and whether they may benefit or hinder your style and needs is the only way to go. So, go step by step through the cameras menus and manual, and try to understand what you're doing when you change things.

It is my opinion that you do NOT need to buy any "guides" or books. The manual, coupled with the massive amount of information on the internet, should be all you need. Just beware of internet opinions from "experts", lol.

As well, much of how you set up ANY camera should be largely influenced by your intended PP workflow (RAW vs JPEG, what PP program(s), etc).
