Advantages of manual exposure?
Feb 17, 2012

I used to be on this forum a few years back with my D200 (lovely camera but ultimately too heavy)

I hope it's obvious why I am asking this question here.

What are the advantages of manual exposure? Why is some peoples eyes is it deemed superior to the alternative semi automatic modes – P, SP, AP, along with Program Shift and the other helpers Histogram, Exposure Compensation and Live View.

fI I could get better exposed photographs I would use it but I just can't see the advantages.

Any opinions welcome.

Nikon D200
