Here are the choices (obviously)
100% Manual...Wait*Edit* 98% Manual and some Shutter priority( not much though.
yay for manual =]
wahoo for manual!
99.9% manual, 0.1% aperture priority.
When I carry my camera I keep it in Program, that way I can just grab a quick shot without having to mess with anything. The majority of my photos are quick grabs, local interest or family so the majority are taken in program.
However, when I have time to set up for a particular shot I will use whatever suits it best, shutter priority, aperture priority or manual, very rarely program for them.
I use manual most of the time, but for quick-moving wildlife I use aperture priority a lot.
I use aperture priority for almost everything, from snapshots to landscapes to strange sky shots. Forcing myself to choose a good aperture helps me almost always know what aperture to use. The only cameras I use manually are mom's old Miranda Sensorex (which is full manual) and my Nikon FG-20 (whose AP mode doesn't work). In these cases I sometimes use the opportunity to choose a shutter speed a stop or 2 off depending on the lighting situation (as opposed to using exposure compensation settings like I do on my D40).
manual - the only i have and the one i'd use the most anyway...!
Can someone please explain the advantages of using manual mode on cameras with AP and SP/TV modes that also have exposure compensation settings?? I think I'm missing something here .
All the cool kids shoot manual only.
Me? I am not a cool kid, it seems like a silly waste of time to me... either you trust your camera meter, or get a new freaking camera (or at least a handheld meter) IMHO... (not counting shooting multi flashes in the strobist fashion ... then manual is the only way to go).
I shoot Aperture Priority about 90 percent of the time, and Shutter Priority the other 10 percent.
