So, I've been using a Canon EOS Rebel XT for the last two and a half years and have gotten very comfortable with it. It has really suited me well. I take shots of the kids and some from the boat. It's only a hobby and it will stay a hobby.I'm by no means very familiar with ISO, Ap, settings. Over the past few months I have had the itch for a new toy. I considered the to 40D,50D and the 7D and ended up with the 7D. I chose it for a very simple reason and that's the video feature. Having the ability to take stills and video from the same piece of equipment was very appealing to me. Here's my problem... The camera is way advanced for me, I got really comfortable with my XT and expected the transition to be easy. What I'm looking for are pointers on how to set this thing up, it has three separate spots for custom settings (C1,C2 and C3) I thought setting one for daytime type shots one for indoor low light and one for a dawn/dusk would be nice. Please tell me if this is worth doing (and how to set it for each one ) Or just give me some opinions, I'm open for suggestions. I'm very excited about having this camera, but just want to make sure I get the most out of it.

Thanks in advance for your help. FYI.. I am using the 28-135 kit lens.
