I have my 20d set to manual mode about 95% of the time. Although I use it much like aperture priority in that I set my aperture for what ever creative exposure I want, wide open if I'm looking to freeze the action or get a nice background blur. Or stopped down for more DOF, or to create motion. Then just adjust my shutter speed accordingly. The main reason I stayin manual mode is probably a little feeble minded, but at my age I think I have that right. In manual mode I know the quick control dial on the back of the camera always controls my aperture and the main dial on top always controls the shutter speed. In aperture priority or shutter priority the main dial on top controls the aperture or shutter speed depending on which mode your in. I just like to keep it simple.
