Hi all!

Loving my D800 one thing annoys me though and maybe somebody here has a tip for me.

On my D800 I want to change auto-iso properties eventually (like from max duration 1/500 when kids run around to 1/25 if static scene). Put it on Function button first custom list element at D700. On D800 I can only put AutoIso on/off on function-button-custom-list, not the AutoIso properties (max iso, max exposure time).

Any idea how to work around this?

Thanks a lot!

I have the preview function button set to top my menu, which has Iso Sensitivty settings as top item.

One press of preview then I can alter minimum iso, auto iso on off, maximum sensitivity and minimum shutter speed from that screen.

How are you setting this. when I tried I can toggle Auto iso on or off, and set iso sensitivity . But max sensitivity and minimum shutter speed give the result  "this item cannot be used in my menu". Having the iso sensitivity and auto iso sensitivity control on the preview button is simply duplicating the iso buttons propose, plus you need to remove your eye from the viewfinder to use.
