It's manual mode using only two knobs instead of three.

    So much of it comes down to what you are used to, and once you are familiar with the set up, it becomes second nature. At least that's how it seems to work for me.
    Thank you very much, Woody.

    Any tips for getting better wildlife images are appreciated. You wouldn't think exposure would be such a struggle after all this time, but apparently, I need to get some more practice out in changing light.
    Seems like I start out using Auto ISO, and then end up switching to full manual.

    I too like the Dog Portrait...
    But I want to add that I use manual with auto ISO on most things where the light changes quickly between shots too. Around my place, I can go from ISO 200 to ISO 2000 in a couple feet because of the dramatic difference from thick underbrush to an open meadow. I am not fast enough to adjust ISO on the fly like that. I still determine shutter and aperture.

    @Danno Thank you.

    I am trying a few things to see what works for me. I changed a couple settings, so I wasn't fluctuating so wildly. I had highlights under better control today. Which metering mode are you using?
