ISO and Auto ISO

  • Auto ISO on/off assignable to a button (Command dial then changes min shutter speed?) (jb, am) [now implemented via Front command dial on newer DSLRs]
  • Auto ISO shutter speed/focal length dependency (min shutter speed = 1/fl for FX 1/fl*1.5 for DX) (js) [now implemented on newer DSLRs]
  • User cancelable Auto ISO in Manual exposure mode (da)
  • Manual selection of ISO above Auto ISO max should override Auto ISO (da)
  • With Auto ISO make it dependent upon focal length (ad)
  • Dedicated ISO button (or ability to assign it to an assignable button) (rg) [on pro cameras, but user wants on consumer cameras, too]
