I'm curious if there is ever a time when some of the experienced photogs on here ever use the evil green box.
I feel I am relatively proficient manually setting my camera up for 99% of shots. The only time I find myself using it is on fishing trips where it is me by myself in the boat. I tend to keep the camera on a tripod and in automatic so that I can get a fish back into the water as quickly as possible. Varying background, light conditions etc. make it very difficult to quickly get a self shot while keeping the fish in the water as quickly as possible...Unfortunately this makes for some not-so-great shots. Any recommendations or should I be happy with at least getting a shot with no harm done to the fish.
