    Nearly 100% manual! My eyes and my spotmeter is more accurate than any metering mode in any camera!

    Exceptions

    1 When I use a P&S! Then just "point & shoot"!
    2 When I am lazy! Then I use aperture priority
    3 When I shoot fast moving subjects, then I use shutter priority

    I shoot manual as much as possible. I just bought 3 new lenses and have to use "stop down metering" or rely on my trusty Luna Pro Meter which I have had since 73. The only time I use auto focus is tracking a moving object and with the new lenses there is no autofocus. I know what I want to be primaty focus and camera is an idiot. I use AV when I asm shooting my grandson in the house with flash and set AFC to get it mostly right. I have my focus set on the center spot only and I focus with that if I am using an AF lens.

    Aperture, sometimes manual. Most of the time with Manual focusing hence have to use Aperture mode to decrease the time needed.

    Slacker mode!!! Oops! Wrong mode...

    For me, it's gonna be manual mode, or totally manual... manual mode, since my camera isn't so advance as to have aperture or shutter priority mode anyway. Totally manual mode, since well, for pinhole, it's literally taking the piece of paper covering the pinhole out, count for a few seconds, and replace the paper... see, totally manual!

    I do use P mode for my p&s though... not that I have a choice for that right?

    Unashamedly, P mode

    However, that's only part of the deal ... you gotta think about metering (spot, center-weighted, matrix), exposure (compensate or not), etc ... and for digital, WB, contrast, saturation, raw/jpg, etc ... enough variables to make a simple job of capturing an image become overly complicated. Therefore, if the camera's CPU can take the load off, why not ?

    But then, I appreciate having the other modes around (A/Av, S/Tv, M), and for some cameras, even the pre-programmed modes (closeup, night, landscape) modes are fun sometimes.

    Exclusively in aperture priority mode but manual for night shots.

    Aperture priority with autofocus for the DSLR. That's because most of the subjects that I took aren't moving so fast that I need to worry about shuttle speed.

    Snap or Inifinity mode for my compact which I used for grab shots. The pictures are soft, but never so much out-of-focus that they become unuseable. I find it an okay exchange for the instantaneous response of the compact.

    Full manual, nothing like using your own judgement to create a master piece.

    auto mode without flash, with exposure compensation.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Apeture Mode for general shooting. Exposure adjustment with -&+ compensation. (+0.3EV standard) Center Weighted.

    Shutter Priority for controlling movement.

    Manual for night shots and crucial lighting like product shooting. (AF switched off)
