I'm just not getting Manual mode. I must be missing something. I've been shooting in A or S but really would like to start w\ full manual. I have the d200. Let's say I'm taking a portrait. I want my aperture at 5.6. Then I look into the viewfinder and meter off my subject until the little bar is at the 0 right? It usually tells me to stop down to 30 or even less w\ the flash open and ends up come out underexposed or blurry since the SS is so slow. Then when I flick it to Ap the shutter speed automatically jumps up over 100 and the picture comes out exposed correctly. What am I missing?
