Aperture priority is great for action shots actually (in less available light settings).

Just lock into your fastest aperture and let the camera adjust shutter speed to get proper exposure.

I'd rather be in shutter priority with automatic ISO + aperture. You can set the max ISO to whatever you want, and a grainy picture is usable, but a blurred picture is not.

I agree, automatic ISO if your camera is capable is great. However, many cameras don't have it...
For TV v AV though (canon users) you want your aperture wide open in low light. If you set to TV your camera is just going to keep putting the aperture wide open and only be able to adjust ISO to reach proper exposure.

So essentially you would only be using ISO for exposure adjustment.
Not to mention with action shots you want to separate your subject from the background as much as possible (usually) and that means being long and wide open.

Auto ISO is overkill, unless your subject is moving in and out of heavy shade and hard sunlight. Try shooting BMX, unless you're intentionally trying to capture some blur, shutter priority is almost useless (for my style, anyway).

Sorry to bump in, but thanks for reminding auto ISO, didn't have that on my rebel. Looking forward to it!

what?

you want you shutter high enough to hand hold/stop motion blur which is when you would set TV to a shutterspeed. what aperture it is doesnt matter since you already have the usable shutter speed....

you set it to AV and youll get maybe usable shutterspeed or not usable shutterspeed....you never know since you really dont know where the camera meters....

Assuming no auto ISO...
If I am shooting baseball at dusk and the light varies from home plate to first base and I want to shoot the runner (stopping action--no panning) I have a couple good options.

Option 1.
Set to full manual at say 500/f2.8/ISO800 then adjust the exposure in post processing (or only keep shots where light meets my exposure settings).

Option 2.
Set to aperture priority at f2.8/ISO800 and let the camera make changes to shutter speed to reach proper exposure. The shutter speed will likely vary about 1 stop down between home and first where the lighting goes checkerboard.

If I set the shutter priority at 500/ISO800 it would be the same as shooting full manual because the camera would keep the aperture at f2.8. (assuming that is wide open)

With you setting to shutter priority with auto ISO you are basically shooting in ISO priority because your aperture will just stay wide open and won't change. An ISO priority might give you the best results with the new algorithms.

At the end of the day you still get better results shooting full manual in most situations, but aperture priority is great in low light.
Shutter priority is great too, just for different applications (such as shooting action though shadowy areas).
