Anyone think this would be a good feature?

It was a pain on the E500 and a double pain on the more complex E3, to try to remember and restore your personal settings, after they were reset to defaults by a firmware update.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to save your settings on a CF card, so you could always restore them after a reset? I would think that it would be a relatively easy job to do in firmware.

Agree until the the restrictions on the format of the data held on the CF card inhibits firmware changes eg if a value is spread over two sub values etc

This is something that really should be present, or at the very least an ability to back up and manage them through Olympus Master/Studio. That and storage for more than 2 custom settings! (on the E3 that is, its the first camera I have been using them on).
