luckily I don't share those habitsSmile
Ah my bad habit is brushing the ISO dial with my thumb by accident resulting in inordinately high ISO - how do you avoid this on D610?
For me it is definitely not resetting the camera, I leave it at whatever I last shot and then it's a scramble for the first few shots of the next time out.
Not resetting is a problem I have too. Or not reformatting the memory card after I transfer the files to my laptop. An issue I have with my FinePix S9500 is, when you change the batteries, the camera resets to it's defaults, including switching from raw back to JPEG!
That's annoying, does it not have a small watch type battery to preserve settings? Been a long time since I had my fuji and I don't remember if I had that issue or not. Though mine didn't support raw format either.

Afraid it only has the 4 AA batteries. I don't use the camera very often and now I know of the issue I will watch out for it next time.
I've gotten lazy about consciously holding the camera steady, spoiled by image stabilization. And IS is only so effective.
