Thanks for the replies. I will look into both suggestions when I get home from work tonight.
To elaborate on what I originally said, this is how I would ideally like the camera to behave:
In the worst of conditions (lowest light), maintain a minimum shutter speed of 1/400
As light improves, increase the shutter speed up to a maximum of 1/800.
If the light is better than 1/800, keep the shutter speed constant and modulate the ISO.
FYI, this isn't a case of laziness; I am ADD, and I tend to hyperfocus on the shooting and forget to change the settings. As an example, I arrived at the field in a hurry one evening, and started shooting. I must have had 50 shots completed when I realized that there was no card in the camera. Shortly thereafter, I figured out how to disable shooting without a card..........
