Run and Gun settings - your favorites?

Testing out a V1 over the weekend, and shooting some run-and-gun and ENG stuff. I see a variety of settings mentioned in these threads but nothing that was specific to this style of shooting. Since I do not have much time to play with the camera, can anyone suggest settings for me to start with?

TIA.

try straight out of the box before anything!!!

it all depends what you're shooting!

i've found moving ae to -2 gives a nice richness to the colour (i'm PAL).

The V1 has a cool feature that makes it really easy to get almost any white balance quickly. Select the "daylight" WB setting. Then push the selection wheel. You will now see a number highlighted next to the sun symbol. You can now roll the white balance from cool to warm and quickly select the best look for the existing lighting.
