Use Custom Resets to Store Picture Settings

Through the Custom Reset option on Shooting Menu 1, you can restore most default settings for the P, A, S, and M shooting modes. Select the option, press OK, and then choose Reset, as shown in Figure 10-6, and press OK again.

Through the Reset 1 and Reset 2 options, also shown on the right in Figure 10-6, you can create two of your own sets of defaults so that you can quickly revert to those settings at any time. For example, you might use Reset 1 to store settings you like to use for shooting sports, and then set up Reset 2 to hold your favorite portrait photography settings.
