Juz want to do a quick survey of what mode everyone typically shoots in. I personally like to shoot in Manual mode, where I have full control of all the settings. This is not good for opportune or candid shots when my fingers juz cannot react fast enuff. What abt you?

You have answered your poll already and rendered the question useless: There is no universal setting (except "Auto" for the beginners) that can be used everywhere. First question is always: what do you want to shoot? The rest is depending on the answer. There might be a tendency towards Aperture mode since most people want to control DoF. Finally, can you guess the shooting mode when looking at a picture? :)

Manual most of the time. But when the situation calls for quick composition with little time for adjustment the other modes will work too.

No one mode fits all

I use:

1. P mode when there's really no need to control anything and that I simply want a picture.
2. A mode when shooting macros and landscapes, when I want to control the depth of field.
3. S mode when shooting fast paced stuff, like sports etc.
4. M mode when doing nightscapes.

No particular mode that I prefer. Of course, I can use M mode for everything, but if the camera can calculate everything for me with reasonable accuracy, why not?

A mode for most of the time and M mode when I need full control as in studio, night or low light flash photography.
