In soccer stadiums, ballparks, and other outdoor venues where some areas are sunlit and others are in the shade, you may find it convenient to save the settings for the latter as described in the preceding section. You can then recall the settings at the touch of a button as your subject passes from sunlight into shadow.
When photographing race cars, speed skaters, or other fast-moving subjects speeding by, save a slow shutter speed for instant recall during panning shots.
At indoor events where you find yourself frequently photographing a brightly-lit electronic scoreboard, you can a save a slow shutter-speed setting for the scoreboard shots.
For quick silhouettes, select highlight-weighted metering for the saved set. You can then choose matrix metering for normal shots and use the button to switch briefly to highlight-weighted metering for silhouettes (sample settings shown).
