Re: What camera settings do you set?

ISO: 200 if I'm in daylight, otherwise AUTO
Sutter: Auto, unless I want to deliberately blur/freeze action for effect
Aperture: Set depending on what I'm shooting, f8 generally, less in low light, f2 to throw background out of focus
Drive: I have a button assigned for this, generally Single frame, but will occasionally use Continuous (something moving quickly I don't want to miss) or a 2 sec timer (eg if on tripod/rest).
Autofocus: Again, I have a button assigned for this, normally use single-centre-point AFS, but occasionally toggle to face/eye detect.
Focus mode: There's a toggle on my camera - manual for landscape, auto otherwise.
Everything else is set & forget.
