D5100 settings
1

I am just getting a chance to look at the D5100 Santa brought me. I noticed there are a number of settings in the menu for sharpening, contrast, hue and so forth. I haven't set up a camera with these before. If anyone has time, I'd love to know which settings to select (or which have worked for you.) I don't want to start experimenting and goof things up right off the bat.
I will be doing flowers and gardens as well as landscapes. Almost no indoor shots and no video. I haven't done RAW before but am willing to learn since I also just received Lightroom 4 as a gift.
Many thanks and Happy New Year to all.
Lynn
