I have purchased the new 5d mk iii. which arrived today and have been testing it performance, especially the manual mode as thats what I shoot with the most. I hoped there would be an auto ISO setting for manual, which there is BUTyep there was a big hooo haa about this the last couple of days i'll find the thread unless it got deleted because people got a bit excited
why cannot I set an exposure compensation while in Manual mode with auto ISO?
I always use manual mode to control shutter and aperture. I meter my exposures from my client's faces that are usually set at +1EV to accommodate light skin. Auto ISO would allow me to keep up with rapidly moving children as ISO speed is not so critical as shutter and aperture setting for me. I appreciate the new advantage of auto ISO that the mark ii did not have, but now my exposures will be a full stop under-exposed using the advantages of auto ISO with the mark iii
here you go
