    Just got my new camera, and spent last two days at work reading the manual and playing about with it when I could Smile

    I am just curious for anyone else with a d7000, or a camera with programmable long-term settings, what settings do you configure to these two templates 1 and 2?

    Have a great weekend all,

    A good topic.

    My wife's P7100 also has U1 and U2 exposure modes which she has never used. I'll be interested to read what others do use them for.

    One thing I toggle between is using auto iso or not, since it performs better than my d50 all the way up to 6400. It's just a bit of a shame it applies to manual mode too, but thats why I've assigned it to the old "depth of field preview button".

    My thoughts so far is for maybe raw+jpg and non auto iso on U1 for staged "photographs", and set u2 to just fine jpg and auto iso, perhaps vivid colour mode too.

    Page 75 in manual.

    If you regularly use specific setting for birds in flight or aircraft, you can set a number of settings such as mode, focus points AF style and button functions. These are saved as U1 0r U2 so that you can easily set the camera to these by selecting the mode on the dial.

    You can have a totally different set up for a landscapes/ portraits etc and save as the other setting.

    It just allows you to switch easily between the two without having to remember all the differing options

    No need to worry, if you don't need them, just forget them.


    User Settings: U1 and U2 Modes
    Assign frequently-used settings to the U1 and U2 positions on the mode dial.
    Saving User Settings
    1 Select a mode.
    Rotate the mode dial to the desired mode.
    2 Adjust settings.
    Make the desired adjustments to flexible program (mode P), shutter speed
    (modes S and M), aperture (modes A and M), exposure and flash compensation,
    flash mode, focus point, metering, AF and AF-area modes (viewfinder
    photography only), bracketing, and settings in the shooting (0202) and
    Custom Settings (0206) menus (note that the camera will not store the
    options selected for Storage folder, File naming, Manage Picture Control,
    Multiple exposure, or Interval timer shooting).

    I think you missed my point, but thanks anyway.

    I am asking what people set theirs as, out of interest.
