Custom Settings you use in low light and in bright light?

What custom setting do you use in low light around sundown or indoors with just tungsten light and in bright light, like at 12:00 noon outdoors. Is auto sufficient?

Thanks,
Leonard.

Auto may be sufficient. If not then these setting are the ones I have found to keep grainy footage out of low light:

Sharpness down a notch
Setup level up a notch or two
Shutter speed to 1/30 may help
Gain at 6 to 12db....18db may show grain
Open exposure setting as needed

Am I missing anything?
