Default My Modes, Your modes

Hey everyone. For those with olympus cameras and my modes, I was just wondering what you use them for and what settings you have on them?

I'm no expert on photography, but I want to set at least 3 my modes.

1. For people portrait shooting
2. For Landscape shooting
3. One for fast action shooting.

I don't want to use the auto presets for these functions since I've heard they are a joke on the C730

Thanks
Dave

I have 8 modes in my 5050 and so far have set up 3 of them, ; the items i have found great in setting up in these modes are custom WB, histogram ranges, multi metering, AF MF focus, flash, zoom ranges, slow sync, etc. I have a couple for landscape, a couple for night shooting, sports, infrared etc.
It is just a shortcut to specific settings, and if you know exactly what you want, they will save you tons of time and battery power.

Thanks Geof. What kind of F number do I want for good portrait shooting? F2, any higher?
