    Using Auto ISO and Manual mode.

    Just watched this video. Not sure if already posted. I tried it and I like it. Why Auto ISO+Manual Mode Is the 'Best' Auto Exposure Mode

    That is the mode I have set for Bird in Flight on U2 on my D7100. Lets you control speed and depth of field while moving and in changing light.

    Re: Using Auto ISO and Manual mode.

    For me it's the way I go when I need both a particular shutter speed and aperture setting. When you're in manual mode chances are you're either there because you want to control both and then you would simply play with the ISO to get your settings to work, or you're shooting with a fixed ISO and you want to control either aperture or shutter speed parameters at will and will adjust the other to suit (i.e. you're doing Aperture or Shutter Priority the old fashion way). My take is using Auto ISO allows the camera to make the decision you would have made doing the first thing above for you. Great for sports and action (ala birds in flight). My 150-500mm needs to be at f8-9 to get really sharp, so I just leave it there and set my shutter speed where I need it (between 1/800 and 1/1600 generally for moving critters).

    Re: Using Auto ISO and Manual mode.

    I usually choose between Aperture and Shutter priority modes. Used to shoot in manual and still do in certain circumstances but got tired of constantly rolling my thumb or finger to adjust while moving. I'm going to give this a try. Using my D3s I'll limit the ISO at 8000 and see what happens.

    And that's the beauty of auto ISO - you set your aperture and shutter speed to create the look/feel you want while the camera adjusts ISO for the proper exposure.

    Haven't had much time to sit down and try new stuff. I just happened across this video on my face book page. I am going to try I more tomorrow and see what it brings.

    It is not as if there are wide choices though.. ISO 100 to ISO 3200 is "only" five stops of range, so as always, our choice of shutter and aperture still depends on what works at the light level we find there. The only difference in this method is what varies...ISO, or shutter speed/aperture. My own notion is that choice of ISO value is more important than that.

    Re: Using Auto ISO and Manual mode.

    That's a nice tip. I was exactly struggling with that when birding. I used A because I usually shoot f/7.1 with the Tam and auto-ISO depending upon the light with a minimum of 1/1000th - 1/1250th.

    My problem was indeed that if I have a still shot in between my shutter and ISO are way too high for what I need but it was just too much work to change that quickly. This makes that easy.

    There's always a most important choice with every photo, and there are times when ISO is at the bottom of the list as in my example - I need f8 for sharpness and 1/800s or faster to freeze the subject. I can fix ISO noise far easier than I can a blurred subject.

    Re: Using Auto ISO and Manual mode.

    Need to take a look at the video. I've been using Auto ISO and Aperature priority lately with my D7000 and Sigma 150-500 with a minimum shutter speed of 1/1000. It's been working OK, but going to manual will probably me a little more control
