    Re: How to set the 5600 to manually? Help!!

    Well…there’s a major reason you might want auto-ISO in Manual Mode. When you’re outside walking around, the light is continually changing from open light to shadows… Within the ISO Menu, you can define parameters for a range that ISO will automatically adjust itself, as you experience that changing light.

    Soooo… You meter the general conditions and set your speed and aperture to fixed values and then as you’re walking around shooting into different lighting conditions, the auto-ISO self adjusts to maintain perfect exposure for each shot within the parameters you’ve defined in the Menu setting.

    Those exposure settings will also change within each of the different metering modes of the camera.

    Then you’ll need to deal with all the different auto-focusing modes of the camera…

    So you see… a Nikon camera in “manual” mode can mean anything within a couple hundred combinations… there really is no “default” for manual mode with a digital camera…

    Interesting - being a film camera a guy - my ASA/ISO is set to the film and stays static, aperture and shutter were the variables - mostly. I hadn't considered the opposite.
    I'm going to have to play with that.


    Thanks!!!!!

    I agree with Fred. When I shoot birds in flight, I count on auto-ISO to help keep my exposure correct. When I aim towards the sky, of course the camera will read the brightness and underexpose. For those times, I use the +/- button on my D7x00 (and FX bodies) to raise my exposure 2/3 to 1 stop. Or if I am shooting towards trees, I might underexpose using the +/- button while still keeping auto-ISO enabled.

    If I am shooting inside - such as during Worship - then I turn off auto-ISO and instead meter the old-fashioned way.
