Re: Beginner's question on A vs. M :)

Hi, I use manual with auto ISO for events with a maximum ISO that I don't want to exceed. I want full control over my shutter speed and DOF. With the D800 able to pull so much out of the shadows I don't get concerned if I underexpose one or two stops. If it becomes evident that the lighting is too low I will up the ISO however.
