How do you shoot when you want to freeze motion? Aperture priority with autoiso is an alternative to S not an increase in automation.

I most enjoy shooting in full manual with autoiso off and a spot meter but there are times when speed is important and for that reason cameras come equipped with modes other than manual which allow parameters ride, but which ones can I give up on:

Not aperture for many reasons, I lose control of what is in focus and possibly get softer results due to diffraction limiting or lens defects wide open.

Not ISO for noise and loss of dynamic range and other factors reducing image quality.

The only parameter that can ride without loss is the shutter speed, upwards when we want to freeze motion. So if a camera were to have only two modes one should be full manual and the other Aperture priority with autoiso and minimum shutter speed set to the other dail .
