A7RM3 | ISO AUTO Minimum Shutter Speed | Usefulness?
1

Of course it only works within Aperture Priority or Program Auto modes, but what is its usefulness, as from my testing with the A7RM3, so far, Slow/Slower/Standard/Fast/Faster relates into the choice/use of Shutter Speeds from 1/8s to 1/100-1/125s independently from the prime/zoom used/set FL?
...Even more "peculiar" is the user manual note about it, but which I couldn't see happening, which states:
«If the exposure is insufficient even when the ISO sensitivity is set to [ISO AUTO Maximum] in [ISO AUTO], in order to shoot with the appropriate exposure, the shutter speed will be slower than the speed set in [ISO AUTO Min. SS].»
Am I missing something?!

TIA,

All the best,
Pedro
