    If you want more consistency, center weighted is more consistent than matrix metering, because the camera thinks less and is more predictable.

    If you want best results, you can use spot, but it is not so convenient in my opinion.

    It's all about learning the behaviour of your camera and suiting yourself to fit it. It's a machine, you're not.

    I use AV mode most of the time. I will switch over to M mode whenever my camera tries to give me Good ISO (e.g. 100) but slow shutter (e.g. 1/30). I always try to shoot at least with 1/60. So this is when M mode comes in handy...
