Wow! Thanks rbarry, that's a lot to take in but I'll just let you know what I've been using up to now.
I usually shoot in AV mode and have been under exposing by up to one stop by pressing the AV +/- button and scrolling with the wheel. If I up the ISO I make sure it's set where I need it, not relying on Auto mode. I haven't yet tried under exposing in any other setting.
I haven't been trying to "maintain" the shutter speed, I've been after a faster one to compensate for a shaky hand, (which I'm working on thanks to advice from jet_kit) especially when I'm at a long focal length.
However, after taking advice on this site I'll not be under exposing very often any more. I know there are times when I'll need to because of the conditions but generally speaking I'm better off getting it right in camera and fixing my shaky hands.
I went out this afternoon and practiced the shooting techniques advised by rbarry and experimented with things advised by cathus. I've yet to check 'em on my pc 'cos crickets just starting and it looks like another Indian flogging so it might have to wait a while. I'll get into it again tomorrow.
Thanks very much one and all.
