I do Manual 95% of the time unless I'm shooting something that I don't really care about like taking pictures of something to be put up on craigslist for sale I'll shoot it auto to save time since i don't entirely care what the finished photo looks like in that case.

I too thought this was going to be about cars, lol. Anyway, I use either shutter priority or aperture priority mode 90% of the time. If I'm shooting something that's moving, the camera can adjust exposure much faster than I can. I really don't ever use full manual mode unless I'm doing macro work off a tripod. The priority modes allow you to compensate exposure up and down in 1/3 stop increments anyway, so you can still set the exposure you want, but have the camera adjust quickly to changing light.

Auto.

I traded in my nikon d40 in the name of "This camera is too **** complicated" and got a more simple sony DSLR which I am in love with. All the pretty of my D40 without all the complicated machinery and buttons and everything making me feel like I am such a poser for having the darn thing lol

manual on the dial, and manual focus... i think it takes away from the art of taking pictures of you use auto, and barring having an artificial intelligence run your camera settings... pictures taken in auto will never be the best they could be

Before my Nikon decided it only wanted to work in auto/no flash mode, I shot full manual about 70% of the time, priority 20% and auto 10%.
