K10d settings for out of the box jpeg

So here I am on a long-term trip without the ability to post-process... I've always shot in raw, but now I need to have good, natural-looking jpegs right out of the camera. What are the recommended settings for this? Defaults just don't do it...

For portraits or shots of people:
Saturation = 0
Sharpness = +2
Contrast = +1

For Landscapes:
Saturation = +2
Sharpness = +2
Contrast = +1

For everything else:
Saturation = +1
Sharpness = +2
Contrast = +1

Kind regards

First set to Bright then +1 for Saturation, Sharpness, and Contrast .

Adjust the things that "don't do it" for you until they do.

We have no idea what you like :-)
