This is kinda schisophrenic, to put some of settings in manual mode to auto mode, and then still with manual mode wanting other settings to compensate for this mixture. You really don´t know what you want, right?
You can do what you want in AV or TV modes. With manual, you are in charge, you have nothing to compensate, and if they allowed some glitch or stupid customers request of auto ISO at manual mode, than it will be everything messed up.
Couldn't disagree more. M mode with Auto ISO is like aperture and shutter priority. I select the DoF I need and the necessary shutter speed to stop (or show) motion, and I get a metered exposure in rapidly changing light. Being able to apply EC to bias the metering is plus.
No, I actually understand your needs, would be happy to have this program in machines, but why in the world should this be in Manual mode? Manual is called manual, because it actually IS manual. I´d add your needs to some other program. Messing it all with EC + auto ISO is really wicked to want in manual mode.
And why not remove the metering indicator and focus confirmation in M mode while we're at it, eh? Hey why not have it disable ALL electronics while in M mode after all it should be pure manual, right??
This is very low. You're making it extreme. I just want it to work as manual program. The metering is there to show what camera thinks of the scene. Not what you have to do. With manual mode and even other modes I rely more on histogram than on exposure meter. Automatic is not manual any more. It deserves to fall under program mode.
No, the metering is there whether you like it or not in all modes, you can't switch it off unlike ..... AUTO ISO so you're argument there doesn't make sense. You can choose to use AUTO ISO or not it's just another tool like the meter or histogram - the camera is advising you of a recommended exposure by showing you an ISO value. (And what this thread was about is that we would then like to over-ride that value and therefore take back control!)
Just like in a car you can choose to use cruise control or not but it's you (hopefully and not one of them google self drive cars) that are calling the shots.
