What does everyone typically use as far as in camera presets to color and sharpness settings on the 5D2?

I have my caera set at default settings of Neutral. However, I shoot RAW, and apply color, sharpness etc in post. I have a camera profile created with XRITE Passport that does the color mapping.

I have contrast -4, sharpness 0, color -2, but that's only for shooting video. The presets don't matter if you're shooting photos in raw anyway.

Well, let me append my statement. The preview on the LCD of the camera changes with the preset, and the histogram will also reflect your settings. Once you pull the raw image files off of your camera and begin editing them on your computer, the in camera settings are lost.

I do not use pre-sets, which is why I was asking if anyone else did. Its not like it was affecting my images or anything and I didn't know it, since I only edit in RAW but shoot in RAW+S jpeg (just to have a thumbnail of the images when looking at them on the computer.)

So many great shots, this is by far my favorite thread to go through.

WRXTACY, #1 definitely brought a smile to my face with the bubble bursting and the kid loving it.
RobD and Jam13, those are great water shots.
