For people who do this, do you just pick certain ISO based on the general ambient light, or do you use auto ISO?

I do either – auto when lighting varies wildly, and manual iso otherwise.

If you use auto ISO and pick a minimum shutter speed, will the camera always try and use the lowest possible ISO?

Yep. Unless DR is set to Auto or > 100%.

Also, I have a very nice exposure compensation dial that is rendered useless in full manual, so that should help me some also I would think.

Indeed, many people like this. I like putting exposure comp on the front wheel, since it’s right next to the shutter, but everyone’s different.

Having always shot in full manual it will be hard for me to give up control of 1 setting (SS), much less a 2nd setting (ISO). Any advice or tips will be appreciated.

You can set the auto features to think like you would, without missing the shot.


Good luck!
