Mini D200?

You don't mean that the P5000 has Customizable Auto ISO like the
D200 does, where you can set the Max ISO and Min Shutter Speed?

How does P5000's P mode Auto ISO work?

You probably want some extra info besides what is in the manual. I just note with horror what it says in the manual (p. 71):

"Auto is equivalent to ISO 64 under normal conditions; when lighting is poor and the flash is off, the camera compensates by raising ISO sensitivity to a maximum of ISO 800 (note that ISO sensitivity is fixed at 64 in mode M)."

Someone please tell me: can it really be true that sensitivity is fixed at 64 in mode M? I do hope they mean that ISO is initialized to 64, or that I am missing something.
