My stock configuration for my 20D is as follows:

  • Evaluative metering
  • Program AE (mode 1)
  • Focus lock
  • Single exposure
  • Center focus point selected
  • ISO 100
  • RAW
  • Autofocus enabled
  • Minimum focal range enabled (on lens)
  • IS enabled (on lens)
  • Autofocus enabled (on lens)

Last night when I was shooting the moon photos, I changed the following:

  • Center-weighted metering
  • Aperture priority
  • -2EV compensation
  • 1EV bracketing
  • ISO all over the place (experimented with shots between 100 and 3200)
  • Autofocus disabled (on-lens)
  • IS disabled (on-lens)
  • Mirror lock-up
  • Extended noise reduction

It would be really nice if I could just hit a button and restore all of the settings to my “standard” configuration. Or, better yet, if I had 2-3 standard configurations through which I could quickly cycle. Right now it’s going to suck if I go toast a card, for example, and forget to come off 3200 ISO and -2EV exposure.
