As I heard the train traversing a close-by bridge I turned the camera on, left it in RAW, cranked ISO up to 800, put my little led flashlight in my teeth to change the Drive Mode button to (medium) burst.

So what am I gonna do next year this time?

Ok, folks, have at this!...

OK this thread's a day old but the OP was interesting to read.

My conclusion : switch your camera to AUTO, and always leave the best lens on it.

Never, under any circumstances, allow yourself to do anything with the ISO button. Your ideas are the opposite of sensible.

You could, if you wanted, go into menus and set the camera to have the max auto-ISO range, but do not ever, ever set the ISO yourself.

Now I'll go and read the thread ...
