    Hi all,

    I'm a few months in on my voyage with a G7, and enjoying it immensely thus far. I've got a comfortable fn configuration set up, and am becoming pretty well adjusted with making tweaks in the PASM modes.

    Now I want to take the next step and start setting up the 3 'C' modes to have some baselines for quick starting.

    I'm having a tough time finding 'the basics' (I know this is a very personal situation as there are millions of usecases) but I'd like to have ideas of where to start for shooting situations like:

    - Fast action / sports
    - Landscape
    - Portrait / tripod
    - Other situations you use (HDR, etc.) and the specifics you assign

    Or, if you know some good reference threads here/elsewhere!

    This is what I have so far...

    Auto SS / something high, 1/1000 or more
    Aperture as wide open as possible
    Auto ISO up to 6400 (?)
    Exposure compensation on the positive side
    Burst mode
    AWB for outdoors or Flourescent / Incandescent for indoors
    Single point focus / middle section of points, C-AF/tracking

    Aperture f5.6
    ISO 200

    I'm new to HDR, and haven't really done much with a tripod... sorry if this should be under a different 'novice' heading on the site
