ISO is not part of exposure

The EXIF says that was shot in M mode. You'd specifically select shutter speed 1/1000 and f/7.3. Also that you had selected spot metering, with the spot located over the dark area on the bird's throat.

As a result, the camera tried to adjust the ISO to expose the throat to 18% gray.

This is not exposure... this is lightness. Adjusting ISO does not change exposure which is fixed in this case

The same people who critic the misuse of the term exposure do the same errors themselves ! Where is the logic ??

Time to extend the meaning of this term.
