Re: Shooting Manual

I agree that it's a matter of personal preference and for various reasons.

I'm curious as to why you think that there are misconceptions about using automation?

I'm all for preferences and people doing things as they prefer. What I'm trying to stamp out, though, are statements about the auto modes that are incorrect. There are these misperceptions that people have that A, S, and P modes make decisions for you (they don't,) that using Exposure Compensation is some sort of crutch (when it's exactly the same as over or underexposing in manual,) and that using the EC and AE Lock functions is more work and fuss than manual (at worst it's the same work and it's usually less work.)
