This is a fallacy many beginners have.

Sometimes fancy camera users need to make decisions quickly. Like a couple a second in changing conditions. Knowing how to use automation intelligently is an important skill to a working pro.

Do you think someone covering a live event uses manual focusing and manual exposure? Why do you think that is?

Why does anyone with a fancy camera use Auto ISO?

Aren't fancy camera users supposed to be able to make basic decisions, and don't they want to keep control of their work?


IMO properly implemented Auto ISO is a great tool for a professional photographer. Use it all the time.
