This spreadsheet was created by Don McVey and distributed on the Nikonians.org web site. This is only a copy of that sheet. For the original, please see http://www.nikonians.org/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=read_count&om=26986&forum=DCForumID202

Please note that this Google version does not support Don's cool ability to change selections with a drop down box and have them appear in yellow as described below. For that you want the original.

Nikon D300 Custom Functions
6
7
This spreadsheet allows you to record the custom functions saved in each menu and bank on the camera.

I've carefully laid out the tabs and menus to match the camera as exactly as reasonably possible. This allows for a logical flow and makes it much easier to follow.

Although you can print the sheets and take them with you, that's not what they were designed for. The intent is to use this as a learning tool to understand your camera, and then document the changes you have made to the menu system so you know what you did. It works best if you have the spreadsheet open with your camera and user's manual in front of you.

13
Select a cell and you can choose an option for that function from a pick list specific to that function. Note the drop-down arrow at the right when you select this cell >
16
17
When you select a drop-down choice that is not the default, the choice will be highlighted in light yellow. This makes it obvious what you have changed and allows you to move quickly through the camera menu to make your changes match the sheet.

19
In some instances, what is available in the pick list will change based on what you select in a pick list that precedes it (like f4, f5, and f6 on the Custom Settings Menu).

21
Set up your function choices using this spreadsheet, then go to the camera (or Nikon Camera Control software) and select the Playback Menu, Shooting or Custom Settings bank A through D, or Set Up Menu and adjust your settings to match.
22
23
The new Nikon Picture Controls are simply too complex to easily integrate into the Shooting Menu sheet, so I have handled them separately on a new tab.

25
Fortunately, beginning with the D300, Nikon has seen fit to allow you to save your custom settings to your memory card (and computer). You can then modify the settings on the fly, and can revert to your saved settings without trying to remember what you changed. This is a huge improvement. But beware - the settings file is erased if you format your memory card!

Version Notes:
28
Ver 1.0Ver 1.0 - © Don McVey November 25, 2007 (DWM at Nikonians.org)
29
Ver 1.1Minor cleanup. Added D2X Picture Controls. Nov 28, 2007
30
Ver 2.0Made selections and added preshoot settings to Shooting Menu to make this version look like the old D200 spreadsheet for those who would rather copy the setting instead of doing their own.
31
I've protected the sheets in this version for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the number of hours and the effort I've put into it and the trouble it causes having multiple versions floating around. It will also keep you from inadvertently messing it up. If you find something really wrong, let me know and I'll do my best to fix it.
