Av mode, by far. If not that, then full on manual.

Honestly, its pointless to use M mode if you are zeroing out the exposure meter anyways.

Why not have it in Av/Tv mode and use EC and lock exposure if you are afraid of the exposure changing.

Sounds about like something you would say

Av/Tv mode with a locked Ec, kinda defeats the purpose of Av/Tv mode in the first place doesn't it.

I must say, you always live up to your name, don't you!

I like spinning with my index finger only, so Av's the way for me. But my thumb gets to play if does Av gets the exposure wrong.

I can't shoot in AV mode. Well, I can, but the shutter speed is all messed up. I have tried increasing the ISO and there's hardly much change. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Have a glance here av-tv

There are many insights on av/tv within POTN via search, the above is just short and to point

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 think you need to go back and re-read my post. I said "more control" in response to a previous post that said:

"I can see myself getting flammed for this but M 100% of the time. I don't like the camera thinking for me at all."

The way I read that statement is that the poster wants to take "control" away from the camera. Since he feels that he can do that better in "M" wouldn't that imply that he believes that M gives him more control?

if you want to get into a battle of semantics then let's take a look at your word "consistency". Your definition of consistency seems to be that you can set the shutter speed and aperture and every shot you take will have the same "consistent" exposure. Well, that could give you some very inconsistent results if your subject and/or lighting is changing. In which case you might get "more consistent" results in some other mode. I have taught a few beginners how to use a DSLR and I can assure you that until they figured it out they got "more consistent" results with the green square. So isn't "more consistency" a relative term? ;)

Now, I know exactly what you meant by consistency and you are right. I'm just trying to point out that I can take your words and twist them around too. I may not have worded my post they way you would like, but I don't believe I am "missing the point".:)

Seriously?

How about you get a few hundred cheerleaders in a cheer comp with all the different color outfits and use AV/TV.....

It's not consistant when you can have one person in all black, another in yellow, another in purple, then turn around and have another in a bright green...

M is the way to go, then you know every shot has the same exposure, and you can run your batches with a larger group than having to make smaller batches based off what the user is wearing.

Also, how long do you think someone will hold AE lock for? Not for a full 8~10 hour day...

No matter what mode you use, you need to have an awareness of what shutter speed you're using. In this case, you need to tweak the "third leg" of the exposure stool and this is the ISO setting. None of the modes, help out here -- this is full manual. Or go flash. This will freeze the action.
