YMMV, but my basic settings include:
- displaying the grid lines
- limiting the auto ISO to 800
- center-weighted metering
- center weighted autofocus
- digital zoom/off
- highest quality, largest images
- both jpg and RAW images
I use P mode for snapshots, but otherwise most commonly A and M. My photography is mostly tourist-type stuff so I have less need for S mode.
I don't think any of this is specific to the G1, though. I'd do basically the same with any camera. I would not own a camera that would not give me the grid lines.
