I would love to know the most common setup of a 70D .... I love the camera but out of 267 different settings Ive spent nights changing, switching, thinking, reading.....
Im not trying to be a professional just want some guidance on a hobby I love so much... my lenses are in my profile and I will buy whatever I need...
My favorite is macro then landscape, then common, nature & family.
THANKS

Hello & Welcome Grayline ~

I think if you ask 20 70D users you might get 10-15 different answers. :-P

I shoot in Manual settings although my ISO is often set to Auto. I also usually have mine set to AI Servo, back button focus, Auto white balance and High speed continuous shooting.

Then I also have inner Auto Focus menu settings for tracking subjects.

I suspect most users do not use the back button focus and have it set to one shot vs AI Servo. Many also use the Shutter or Aperture priority.

Based on what you have identified your subjects to be, perhaps a macro shooter like Paul can chine in as to his typical settings.

Hi - as Will says ask 20 people, get 10 - 15 different responses.

I shoot a bit of a variety but mainly landscape, and it depends a bit what I'm trying to. Mostly I use aperture value to control depth of field, mainly f/11 or so for landscape. It does depend a bit what lens I'm using and what the light is like. I've recently "discovered" primes, and often use the Canon 24mm f/2.8 at quite large apertures in low light. DOF seems okay.

If I decide to do a panorama I switch to manual, usually I've taken a test shot first, then put those values into manual mode. I usually use single shot shooting mode, with single spot metering, but still playing with that. Sometimes, to try learn and to test myself I'll use manual.

When I do landscapes with a filter I'll try auto focus, but sometimes use manual, depending on the light, and whether AF can actually work with the filter on. With the filter on (Haida ten stop usually) I sometimes stop down to f/16, or even f/22 to slow things down more. Also if I'm trying for sunbursts I'll go down to f/22 in normal landscape. If I can't focus, I'll set the lens to infinity, and have found that works.

Macro is usually on the tripod for me, and mainly flowers. I might use a range of apertures depending what I'm trying to achieve/playing with. Manual focus for macro, at 10x magnification. As Will said Paul is the macro guru, and Medicine Man does a few too, so I'm sure if they see you post they'll chime in.

Look forward to some posts :-)
