Just read the manual of the 5D III, 1/250 as fastest time for auto iso is bloody stupid. Still usless for sport and action. Might be of use for weddings but that its. Why are they doing this to us?
Here's a thought.....set your own ISO. Call me kooky. A lack of auto ISO doesn't make this camera useless, yet it has auto ISO....can't have everything. You may be a useless photographer if you can't figure out what your ISO should be and set it on the fly. I hate these kinds of useless rants....just because YOU can't figure out how to set your ISO for sports/action, doesn't mean other people can't.
There is a case for auto iso - but this I suspect was an operator reading the manual error
lol.....sure, auto ISO is great for when you're inside and find yourself going outside and it's sunny and you forget. It helps not to be shooting ISO 1600 when it's wonderfully sunny outside....I've done it. Auto ISO on my 60D is perfect for that. But I don't know anyone who requires auto ISO to shoot motocross. That's bloody ridiculous.
I use it for chasing birds in and out of the sunlight. Without auto iso there would be a lot more missed shots.
Cant see why motocross would be different - unless of course you just point the lens at one point.
I am going to a BSB test next Wednesday - so the 1D4 will be in M mode with auto iso set as the bikes go in and out of the sun round Brands Hatch. I think it is bloody ridiculous to ignore a really useful feature
