    Manual cos most of the times the camera metering is not smart enough and get fooled easily by tricky background conditions.

    Av most of the time. M when i want to do long exposures or when i use flash. And P when i need to take a quick pic with flash that doesn't look too bad.

    Av or M.

    If I'm covering a paid event then it's P all the way Clients like quantity rather than quality abstract...

    Same for me... Av followed by M.... I only use Tv only when shooting gushing water (waterfall)...

    Sad to say, I do not know how to use the rest of the modes... Auto, P, Night shot....

    I call it Peabrain mode. No need to think. Just AF lock and shoot

    the P mode on my camera is pretty smart for the average scenes. Then sometimes I'll have to shift the program or exposure compensation. Actually, I think that at parties, and when I need to be very quick, I'll use P.
    But on my outings, I'm using M.

    Av generally as I tend to shoot wide and fast, events, people (they tend to move about too much). Manual for times when I just got lots of time on hand to compose and try different exposures.

    When I shoot events and time is of the essence, I stick everything to P-mode, TTL flash and just whack. No time to think.

    Most of the time, P-mode.

    Only when I want to get creative, then I will use S or A modes.

    That's a good one ... I love those modes.

    Back to the camera modes ... When I go shoot shoot with friends, I use Manual Mode.

    And if I'm driving with the camera on my side, Popgram mode <--- no time to fiddle with the settings when shooting things that fly across my windscreen

    M most of the time, AV once in a while when I do events.
