Setting k20 parameters for different modes

Ok guys and girls- what do you set your slides to for general shooting? I like vibrant with the slides set at around 90% of max except the contrast which i keep a little to the right of center especially when taking sunsets. I have the k20 and i do like it. CHARLIEZAP

I shoot RAW so the only camera setting that really has any effect is ISO. It can all be adjusted after the fact to suit the image.

Raw Only. Think about raw v. jpg like making an omelette. With raw you have all of the ingredients available to combine (or re-combine later) in any way you want. With jpg, the ingredients have been combined, cooked, and the extra ingredients thrown out. There isn't much you can do to change the recipe at that point.
