G1X II - Auto ISO is aggressive - Loves fast shutter speed & ISO 3200
I'll preface this with: I know there's a setting for how quickly Auto ISO ramps up. If anyone has any tips on Auto ISO, I'd appreciate it.
Most camera's I've worked with seem to strike a nice balance and (assuming IS is on) seem to aim for a shutter speed that accounts for IS. So slower shutter speed than needed for a handheld shot at the present focal length. This usually results in a sharp picture without going overboard on ISO.
The G1X II seems to aim for a faster shutter speed than necessary and auto ISO of 3200 very quickly. Outside in the shade at the tele end of the zoom, f5.6, it wants ISO 3200. I manually set 800 and got a perfectly fine picture at 1/50 of a sec.
Anyone understand the logic here? I tried setting the Auto ISO "Rate of change" setting to "Low" and that goes to the other extreme. It wanted to use a 1/15 sec exposure which is not going to work out well most of the time. I can't believe there's a "High" setting too.
