Gotta admit, there is a whole lot of snobbery associated with shooting in manual.


I usually associate Snobbery with Apple Users....:-P

M most of the time, only because I learned on all manual film cameras. Though I do use av and tv mode if I have an idea of an image I want.

I just did a re/read of all posts, in this thread.
Not one snobby snip did I see or a single put down of any kind, nothing associated with snobby.

Just because some noticed that the person giving out all the advice was themselves shooting in the green box. Not a snobby comment. Just a notice of fact.

As of yet I haven't even seen any pokes at one post by another.

So do tell, were is the snobbishness that this thread is so filled with.

If someone feels they are being snubbed by another just for stating fact, ( how they shoot ) well the only snobb there is in there mind.

M & AV. Manual especially when using flash. AV when the lighting gets tough and shots need to be had fast.

I prefer M however I have an editor that requires that I shoot in TV (Shutter Priority). It's really wierd, it's like they almost think that a photographer can't think for themselves. I actually get yelled at for shooting in M even if the photos turn out great!

A lot of the time we forget that the camera is just a tool. It's your eye that sees a scene and your brain that decides how to shoot it.

There's no shame in using full auto. Sometimes, if I'm in a hurry, I flip my camera to fully auto/no flash (the white box) and fire away. Most of the time it gives me great shots.

Most of the time I use M because, as I mentioned before, it's just fun.

If you need quick copies of pages a DSLR in full auto is better than a scanner :D

Strange.... very strange indeed.
Maybe you can discretely point them at some appropriate literature?

If you missed shots I'd understand that - but if they turn out well?

I shoot in P mode most of the time, sometimes in AV. I can change the aperture or shutter speed with the dials if I want to and set exposure compensation if needed.

Seriously though, for MOST subjects I really don't see how manual gives you more control than AV or TV when combined with some EC.

You're kinda missing the point. M doesn't give more control, it gives more consistancy. The decision for M vs Av/Tv should be made based on whether or not you want that consistency.

I would have voted for portrait mode, but my 5D doesn't have it. :lol: jk!

I'm mostly an Av shooter, M when I shoot indoors with flash mostly.
