This has been really annoying to me. When ever I'm looking at someone's flickr and find that 100% of theie shots were shot in Aperture Priority mode, it just upsets me that someone would drop $$$ for a camera they have no idea how to use it. To me that means, you have no idea how to use a camera, instead you would just simply point and shoot, which is why there are P&S cameras out there. STOP USING APERTURE PRIORITY! SHOOT MANUAL!!!!

Do a search for a thread on here that polled photographers on what mode they used. If I recall correctly the vast majority of pros used AV primarily. They all know how to use M but why spend $$$ on a camera with great Av capability and only use M? One still needs to understand photography, and may need to apply exposure compensation in some cases, it just makes shooting faster. It is great you have started to play with M. Knowing how to use M is actually the very first and simplest technique taught in photography when jumping out of green box mode. Using it is a start to learning but does not make a person any sort of better photographer.

Man you got way way too much f$%kin' time on your hands if this is what you do with your days. Checking who's shooting Av? Are you serious?

I hope all your camera's mysteriously lock on 'greenbox'.....:lol: :lol:

Um . . . I have a camera that uses M. Exclusively. It went out of production (along with the lenses that fit it) back in the '80s. It also required me to focus the lens myself. So I think I may know how to do all that stuff myself. But I use P and AF most of the time now, because it gives me what I would have picked myself anyhow. So I can concentrate on the composition. People don't buy photos because they were exposed in M. They buy them because they captured the instant.

that auto-focus thing that i see so many people using now, it frustrates me so much! it just upsets me that someone would drop $$$ for a lens they have no idea how to use. there's a manual focus ring there for a reason, use it!

Exactly. People that are snobby about shooting manual should go back to daguerreotype. But then it would be, "Rubylith Development=n00b?"

I don't even really know what that means, but I know it's brilliant.

There are occasions when you shoot at aperture priority. Such as when I want to shoot at max f-stop for good bokeh effect.

People can shoot however the hell they like, why should they care what you think?


A BIG +1 from me.

I don't normally like to partake in these types of threads, but I think those who flame others should be put in their place. And that means you, OP.
