Default Sony A55 Personal settings please

Hi all
So whats your setting on the A55

Exposure mode, contrast, saturation, scene, sharpness, Iso, drive mode?

Had mine for about a month and have a sigma 17-70 HSM F2.8-4 for every day walkabout and a sigma 70-300 APO for a bit of wildlife,sports work. Having come up from the panasoic superzooms (had fz28/38/100) its a hell of a step up in pic quality and the video auto focus is suprb with no noise from the HSM motor on the 17-70.

Just waiting for some decent weather to get out and snap some good pic's.

As for the battery shot 1137 pics at the local karting event in 4hrs and still had 30% left so not so bad.
Cheers scoobydude

Scooby - I have mine set on Vivid - Contrast 0 Saturation+1 Sharpness+2

ISO Auto - most of the time

A or S mode - occasionally M

Drive mode - one at a time unless I'm wanting to catch something fast then I will set it on burst.

Have Fun - Be Nice - Don't Break Anything
