I'm finding that I do just as well to leave my camera on "P" unless there's a GOOD reason to move it to another setting. Last Fall I shot an entire family reunion on "P" and used my software to make the changes I wanted. Depending on what I'm shooting my camera is set on "P" at LEAST 75% of the time. I guess if I was shooting high fashion stuff it'd have to be different, but not for the day to day photography I like to do. How 'bout the rest of you?
