All you photographer types, best camera settings?

I wanted to see what the more photography-oriented of you had found were the best overall settings to use as a default for the Incredible camera.

I took a lot of test shots and viewed them on my laptop to help dial in the settings, and so far this is what I have:

Brightness: -2 (the Inc seems to overblow brightness so I turned this down to alleviate this)

Contrast: -1 shadows were too dark even at the default brightness)

Saturation: 0

Sharpness: -2 (the Inc seems to over-enhance edges and details suffer, this helped immensely but results in a soft image)

White Balance and ISO at Auto

Resolution at 5 MP, I found the pics were far less grainy at 5 vs 8

Metering: center or spot seem to work best indoors, average for out doors

What is everyone else here using?

May give OP settings a try but the stock settings seem to be hit or miss with the auto feature imho. See here.
