I agree Jim,
With AE every single shot is exposed incrementally differently. 
As the light has NOT been changing it makes it a bitch to print with any
continuity as a photo story.
In a situation which doesn't not change, people sitting around a restaurant
table if you are doing a series of shots you'd normally find out how much light
you've got and just run with it.

It bugs me about AE that it takes longer and is more trouble for me to lock down
and follow through with a reading on the AE camera and keep your pinky down or
whatever throughout all those shots in a series. Much easier to just set your
camera at your reading and fly with it without the throbbing pinky.
