    My Learn and Shoot #1 - very very very very basic Checklist

    This post will contain the information on my photo shooting 'habit', the settings i usually check before putting my eye in front of the viewfinder.

    0. Lens cap is removed/power is on/battery level/frames left;

    1. Current lens focus mode and camera focus mode - M/A, VR-on, normal;

    2. Current exposure mode - Manual mode;

    3. Current ISO setting- recently started to prefer iso-auto (will talk about why some other time);

    4. Current WB setting - Auto/Pre;

    5. Current Exposure Compensation - EV, +/-;

    6. Current metering mode - Matrix;

    7. Current AF area - Dynamix area;

    8. Image Quality settings - Jpeg+Fine;

    9. Current Picture Control - Sharpness (+5), Saturation (0/+1/+2/+3);

    I use the 'func' key to customize a menu for easy one-hand accessing to the above settings.
