Yeah, auto ISO now works properly for sports shooting with faster shutter speeds

Yeah! Finally after years of not getting this right (all the way back to the D70), Nikon has finally fixed the min shutter speed for auto ISO on the D300 in the latest firmware release.

You can now shoot sports in Aperture priority, set your aperture as desired (I shoot wide open for background blurring which is f/4 on my 200-400) and set a min shutter speed of something like 1/1000th and the camera will raise the ISO only as needed for proper exposure. This is great!

I've been shooting in shutter priority with auto-ISO, but I don't always get the aperture I want when it gets bright. Now, I can always get what I want.

Thank you Nikon for finally bringing this feature request to the D300.
