Re: SX50 - Is manual mode the best?

Those are the main things to change. You can also adjust color, saturation, contrast, sharpness, filters, special effects... but you can do that in other modes as well.

I have been shooting since the mid 70's. Always use Av (Aperture Priority), Tv (Shutter Priority) or Manual depending on the situation. I mostly use manual when shooting things like my friend's sons hockey games where I set the exposure once and just take pictures and all come out properly exposed. I do that because the lighting on other modes might change if a light is in the photo or not when it doesn't need to and since the lighting doesn't change it is easy to work with. I use it anywhere you don't need to make constant adjustments else I leave it on mostly Av.
