What are your go to overall settings for high quality, color accurate photos. Regardless of the situation you're shooting in?
A few of these are subjective. You can activate auto-HDR, but some individuals don't like what this does to colors. Definitely picture softening off, prioritize focus over speed, and capture speed: prioritize quality. In the end, it's about what looks best to you. I encourage you to play around a little bit with the settings to find what works best for your specific needs.
I have it set to always off because I can easily add this effect in the editing stage if I want. I also have the quick tap shutter turned on.
