Hi,

I've read and viewed a lot about the use of the P mode, I've even encountred some confirmed photographers who are using it, however, I stilldon't understand why we use it ?

I mean if we want to control the aperture or the schutter speed we use the A or the S mode, and for the rest of the option the camera takes care of, ...

What's the practical uses of the P mode ?

The real question seems to be, "why have a separate aperture priority and shutter priority mode in addition to program mode?

The answer to that seems to be, in part, "because A and S modes will keep the same aperture and shutter speed respectively from shot to shot, while P mode can reset either or both between shots.
