Using manual is also not the only way to get good shots or the effects you want out of your cameras. It's just one way of getting good shots. I use mostly aperture priority, and I can get great shots too. When I use manual, it's because aperture priority cannot achieve the effect I want, or I want control over both aperture and shutter speed at the same time. Even then it's not full manual, I'll usually leave it to auto ISO on manual mode if the lighting conditions will change. If they won't then of course, full manual is fine.
It's more about using the different modes to get the effect that you want. I use both aperture priority and manual, but for different purposes. I won't foolishly stick to manual mode because I know I probably won't get consistency, which is important. If you can master manual exposure, good for you. I'll stick to aperture priority, which gives me the shots I want anyway, and I can PP my shots to give the exact effect I'm looking for.

wheres the CA?
the entire album is straight out of camera, didnt bother to photoshop, and yes could have gotten sharper images by stopping down but i was negligent to that.
sometimes, dun just listen and parrot what others say. some claim what, the 55-250 very plasticky build ar. some claim this and that.
point is, go down, rent equipment, shoot, and see what happens. THEN u conclude. my 55-250 is a pretty babe.

brad merely pointed out what u cannot do with ur camera: contrast.
and what u can do to save urself: pp, composition.
he admits everyone has their own preference. just using manual doesnt mean u are good if u dun understand the basics.
u dun have to go around challenging like some kungfu kid.

The 55-250 may not be the sharpest lens around, but it definitely can get decent images, unless you're printing posters to put on buildings. If there's anything to complain about my 55-200 lens, it's the focusing speed at the longer focal lengths, and the max aperture. Definitely not the image quality.
anyone managed to access his fb yet? i still havent seen his photos so i cant comment much
i wont say... all the composition is bad. just that hitrate is very low...
i'm guessing u covered for sch. here is mine... http://www.facebook.com/#!/album.php...4&id=786218584
not very good, certainly far from perfect. but i dun see much prblems with my lens from the images... except one where there actually was a flare.

IF you're referring to those high speed images of model rockets where they're super dark, I purposely set the shutter speed to 1/4000 so that the water droplets can be frozen... You cannot say that they have poor exposure.
