New owner of a D500 and could use some settings help!
1

I'm coming from a Nikon P900, so it's swimming in the deep end for me right now. I took a couple of decent shots the first day and then made what I thought were positive changes... turned out crap the second day!

The first day I shot in P mode like my old camera. It seems everyone uses manual mode for the D500? The D500 doesn't have a "U" selection like my old camera unless I just don't know where it's hidden? I had my in-flight settings saved under that on the old camera and guess on this one I can't keep two setups? I did get it set to RAW now and have my ISO ranges set. In the old camera -0.3 EC seemed to work 99% of the time, but don't know on this one. I did read it seems most people set it higher?
