I understand that most of the experience snappers here would probably be using M-mode for effect, sharpness, contrast etc.... But given the different combination of Shutter speed, ISO and Apperture, i would like to know the following on some occation where the target is moving and not posing for you.
Example 1 ) Taking a picture at the Lions at the zoo when the lions stands up and climbs a tree, when you start taking pics, how do you ensure that you have a good setting on the Shutter, ISO and App? If they are not in good setting, by the time you adjust and get the right setting, lions probably walked away already.
Example 2) For bird lovers, nice bird fly past, how sure are you that your zoom and settings are correct for that distance. This one probably if the setting is wrong, its going to be too bad cause the bird will not fly back for you right?
Example 3) ( Personal experience As im still a newbie ) Dinner gathering. Suddenly friends say since you have a camera lets all take a picture...Picture came out Too dark, too bright, shutter too slow so blur and stuffs like that. By time adjust here and there. All gave up already!!
Personnal conclusion from a niewbie)
1) Its either the pros here look at the lighting only they know roughly what setting so 1 shot for trial and error and 2nd shot for the kill?
2) Take practise shot of the enviroment first and get the settings roughly correct and then wait for action?
3) Am out of answers so please let me know if there is a 3rd answer to this ?
