Does anyone use the "A" auto ISO on your 5D Mark III and 1DX ?   Just trying to see what other pro is using.

Often.  With limits.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I use auto a decent amount, and set the limit on a regular basis, but never with flash work, as it "auto" sets to 400. But I also only run a 60D
60D, Canon 70-200Lf/4 IS, Sigma 17-70 2.8-4, Tamron 70-300 4-5.6 VC, EF 50mm 1.8II, and a Sigma EF-610 DG superflash

All the time. Tv set to the minimum and the aperture can do what it wants indoors.


Outdoors in good light, Av with Auto ISO.




I'd rather have a some noise to clean up than miss the shot altogether.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

The camera is a pro body that is set to auto ISO but I am not a pro photog :)
That is when I am shooting in M mode and the light is going to vary quickly due to changing angle of the shot and I would not have time to fix the ISO...

Never.

Bit I can understand why others use it.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Occasionally, when lighting conditions are rapidly changing and I don't want to fool with it.

The 5diii has spoiled me.  I use auto ios most of the time and don't get too concerned because the noise is so low.
5d Mkiii; Eos-M; too many lenses; 430 EXii and a whole lot of stuff

I use it rarely ... when it is used, it is when the lighting conditions are unpredictable ... to give you an example: while I'm doing bird photography where there are lots of trees/thickets I use Auto ISO, bcoz if the bird I'm shooting, in well lit with direct sunlight, suddenly goes to perch on a thicket or a branch where it isn't getting enough light to capture the image, I may not have the time to change ISO manually.

I use it rarely. Changing iso manually can be done very quickly without even taking your eye from the viewfinder.
