Hi guys,

Just curious. Do you normally use Manual mode all the time?

Or depends on situation where you switch to Aperture priority and Shutter Priority?

I think newbie like me will use Auto for the first time too.

Ok to make it simplier which mode do you guys use normally and at what situation.:think:

And which dial or mode is easy to use for newbies.

thanks

Manual mode permanant. Rely on the light-meter and u have the full flexibility of adjusting aperture, shutter and iso on the fly!

Manual mode is not reccomended for newbies not used to metering. Set ur metering to evaluative, use auto iso, auto white balance and stick to av, tv, p modes and slowly pick up from there is the best. I reccomend starting with P mode at first and not full auto mode, so at least u can get a bit of feel over flash, iso and focus control etc while the camera takes care of ur exposure, shutter & aperture.

I used P all the time. No point doing what the camera is programmed to do for you.

I adjust the +/- according to the situation...

Hi, if I have all the time to shoot an object or shooting at night, I would use M mode as I can adjust the shutter speed and lighting effect to my liking. Otherwise I will use AV or P mode

Newbie here as well, can someone comment on these pics. I used aperture priority for most of my shoot too.

I use whatever I need to in order to get the shot.

I use Av, P, M, or any of the Auto Set modes...it really depends where I am and what I am trying to get. I do find that sometime shooting in Auto and then seeing what the camera decided to use is a a good way to get an idea, then I sometimes switch to Av or M and just play around to see what results.

i personally think no matter how experience one might get... still cant win the "sensor" built in the camera for exposure control bah... if we got alot of own sweet time to adjust speed n aperture, by all means try to play with manual... otherwise, i think T or A should be good enough for most cases... why try to skip technology when we already paid for it... :)

usually manual and aperture priority...

however i do use the P to take a look at settings, adjust and then reshoot, in the event my initial pic using manual didnt turn out too well.
