Re: auto ISO sucks with X cameras

Agree Auto-iso sucks.  But then using 1/equivalent focal length also sucks (Fuji users complained like hell in this forum before firmware update). I have used Nikons latest auto-iso implementation in D800 which is 1/equivalent focal length * multiplier OR you set single minimum speed and that is better, but IMO still not perfect.

This is what I'd suggest as perfect auto-iso (for me anyway):
Minimum shutter speed is the higher or:
a) single min shutterspeed value (upto 1/4000th) entered by user (to cover subject blur)


b) 1 / equivalent focal length * user entered multiplier (+-4 stops). The multiplier should have different values memorised for at least OIS ON/OFF and maybe for each lens.

that way I'd set multipliers for my lenses when I bought camera/lens and change a) as I was shooting in Auto iso mode.  If I still didn't like the shutter/aperture/iso combination the automatics calculated then revert to manual iso.
