How about learning your photography fundamentals so that you can derive your own settings no matter the situation?

there are no magic settingsthat will cover everything
well maybe the P mode
or, if you are really lazy...then the pre-set functions....if not..then its based on your skill....settings are set according to the conditions you are experiencing....there is no such thing as lowest ISO or apperture at f8...photography is about manipulating all these to get you a good picture....and it all boils down to your skill.
just my two cents worth...$$;)

Different settings will give you different results. A little time spent in adjusting ur settings before you shoot will reder different pix. Take a few shots of the same scene with different settings and choose the ones you like best when you upload into your pc.

If not, just shoot in RAW and do whatever you like afterwards. :p

RAW format only gives one that little more allowance for adjustment (or mistakes in setting) it is not the magical format which allows one to do whatever one likes afterward

You get some, you miss some.....it's all part of the learning experience.:)

It's difficult to tell you what particular settings to use as travel photography is a composite of street, landscapes, archit, portraits, abstract, etc.....Hence different scenarios require different settings. Understanding the relationship between aperture and shutter speed would be a good start.

Sometimes it's good to miss some shots, esp when it's painful.
It makes you remember your mistakes.

Yup, that's what I meant. :)
Thanks for elaborating.

If the choice is between raw and JPEG compressed images, then raw IS the "magical format". JPEG is designed to store ready-to-view images; for anything that requires some amount of further processing, compressed JPEG is a very bad choice.
