    That is good to know! There's are rumors of a firmware update for the D7100 and D7200 (to enable full control of AF-P lenses). Be great if the D7100 gains an easier way to manage ISO, if / when that happens. One can hope. Your favorite, most-used D7100 feature(s)?

    One way to get quick-ER access to ISO settings on the D7100, and other bodies as well, is to program a button -- FN or what have you -- to the "My Menu" function. Of course you'll want to configure the My Menu function to give you access to the ISO settings.

    I liked the "easy ISO" option on my D7100. I have it on my D750 but really miss it on my D500. Google how to set it up. I'm on my phone otherwise I would post a link.

    I found the setting Pete was referring to. It is from a Photography Life article by Nasim Mansurov...


    When shooting in modes other than Manual (for example Aperture Priority), the Nikon D7100 allows changing ISO with the rear or front dial, which can be nice when one needs to adjust ISO quickly with one hand. This can be enabled by going to “ISO display and adjustment” and setting it to “Show ISO/Easy ISO”. However, there is a downside to this feature that is rather annoying – once you do this, the camera will no longer show you the number of remaining shots left in your memory card! For this reason, I usually disable this feature and pick “Show frame count” instead. If you do not care about seeing how many shots are left in your card, then I would recommend to use this feature. Nikon has addressed this trade-off in the Nikon D750, which now has a dedicated “Easy ISO” setting – picking that option no longer affects the display of the image count.

    I've just switched to this setting, not used it yet but I think it is going to make a big difference to how I shoot. I never look at the shot count anyway so that's no loss. Using manual and auto iso was a decent work around but I never got used to not knowing what iso I was using whilst taking the shot. Actually just checked and now with "Show ISO/easy ISO" on I can still use manual and auto ISO but now with the added bonus of being able to see the ISO setting change.

    Re: Your favorite, most-used D7100 feature(s)?

    I'm trying to do the following but for whatever reason I can't find the "My Menu" section in the menu. I've had a look at the user manual but it hasn't helped me at all. The menu it is showing I just can't seem to find. EDIT: I've just figured it out, I had "Recent settings" displayed instead of "My menu".

    "The next important menu option “Assign Fn button” allows programming the “Fn” (Function) button on the front of the camera. Since I shoot in different environments a lot, I like to be able to change my Auto ISO settings quickly (not just enabling or disabling Auto ISO, but actually accessing settings like “Maximum sensitivity” and “Minimum shutter speed”). Unfortunately, Auto ISO is buried in the “Shooting Menu” and takes too long to get to. I love being able to access Auto ISO with just pressing the Fn button and that’s something you can set up very easily. First, go to “My Menu” section of the menu. Then go to “Add items” -> “Shooting menu”. Find “ISO sensitivity settings” and instead of getting into this menu, simply press the “OK” button. The next screen should say “Choose position” and you will see “ISO sensitivity settings” there. Just press “OK” one more time and you will see this on the top of the “My Menu” window. If you already have some favorites saved, make sure to move this one to the very top. Once you do this, go to the “Custom Setting Menu” again and navigate to “Controls” -> “Assign Fn button”. From there, pick “Access top item in MY MENU” and press OK. Now test it out – close the menu, then press the “Fn” button on the front of the camera. If you did everything right, the back LCD should get you right into ISO sensitivity settings! Pretty neat and saves a lot of time when you need to tweak the Auto ISO feature!If you don’t particularly care for the depth of field “Preview” button, you can program your D7100 to do the same thing from that button instead."

    I am not kidding at all, I almost never use any of my cameras in automatic. My favorite camera of all, my Hasselblad, does not even have a meter and the CDS meter in my 45 year old FTn has been dead for years. The CDS meter in my F2 is starting to get a little inconsistent as well, but it is 40 years old after all. That is what an incident and 1 spot meter are for and I use both all of the time. In high contrast scenes, an incident reading will be better 99% of the time than some over-complicated Matrix metering. When I have time to really take to meter, I still use the 1 spot meter and Ansel Adams' Zone System and set the manual exposure accordingly. Adams' Zone System can be used just as well with a digital camera, if you are familiar with the dynamic range of the sensor.
