    not true that manual = pro lah

    all the different modes on the camera serves a purpose. the idea is to use the right mode for the right purpose and in a way that suits your own style

    if u prefer AV and the condition allows it, then shoot using AV. if you like P, then use P. if you like TV, then use TV. if you know what u're doing and you want something very specific, then use M.

    if you don't feel like thinking and lighting is good, just use Auto. the camera is just a tool. use it any way you want to get the results you want

    then good luck to him lor give himself unnecessary trouble for nothing.

    imo, the shooting modes is just one of the factors. a more important factor is metering mode.

    this is something a lot of pple overlook - multi-segmented metering may not be suitable for everything

    there's a time and place for everything... like i said, if they know what they're doing and they are looking for a very specific look and feel, then by all means shoot M.

    but acting pro by insisting on shooting in M mode when one doesn't know aperture from aubergine is just plain silly.

    At the end of the day if the photographer uses M mode, then sets aperture, and then rolls the wheel dial until the meter says "0" without understanding what he's doing, he is using AV mode at 0 EV, in a more roundabout (and retarded, if I may add) way.

    not to be snobbish or anything but some pple are truly better off with a good PNS rather than a DSLR.

    its not because they are less intelligent or less serious or anything, but if they're too busy to experiment and research a bit to understand the camera's functions properly, they really shouldn't waste money to cause pain for themselves. there are more straightforward ways to take nice pictures.

    u r rite, i am one of those better off with a good PNS. no hard feeling!! i travel and snap a lot with my PNS nowadays due to the convenience and quality of the new gen of PNS, but when i need better equipment i will whip out my trusted dslr, no less. However, i still think one should master the fundamental of photography to enjoy painting with light, notwithstanding what equipment is in your hand. I find that the enjoyment is enhanced if we go in with basic knowledge, whether photography in specific or any hobby in general.
