I've never really used auto-ISO because the idea of the camera suddenly raising the ISO to some astronomical number is terrifying. Also, it feels like I'm losing control of something that I do want to control. But I realize now that setting minimum shutter speeds with max ISO may be beneficial.

Is this a tool that pros use? Thoughts appreciated!

I use Manual with auto iso which makes the most sense to me I control the SS and f stop and the iso lands where it does automatically and if I wanna tweak it I use either of the wheels
