jdawn1982, I agree!

Aperture Priority (Av) is a great way to control the DOF. Higher F# less DOF, and vice versa lower F# more Bokeh.

I use Av 90% of the time.
For landscapes i put it on an aperture of f/8 and just shoot.
for other stuff i check if i need more dof or less dof.

I use manual when i use an external flash. In that way it can be controlled better.

I never use auto anymore. Mainly because i shoot in the raw format and auto only does jpg.
