Do you typically shoot in P or M?

For the sake of speed and ease...

I almost always shoot in...

P - when I don't care about DOF

A - when I care DO about DOF

S - when I care about movement

and finally....M - when the situation is much more controlled and I have plenty of time to make adjustments...but that's pretty rare.  Mostly I'm in A or P.

Oh and I almost always use auto ISO.

I don't think they give out awards for who's the best at manually adjusting A, S and ISO quickly, just at who gets a good shot.  I think my wife would be aggravated with me though if I tried to shoot in M all the time and missed certain shots because I was fiddling with the exposure.  I think today's cameras meter more than well enough for most people's standards.  A slight tweak to exposure in Lightroom doesn't bother me, if I need to do it.
