Question about displaying ISO info in 5dmkiii
« on: March 23, 2012, 12:27:28 AM »
Wondering if there is anyway to get the ISO info in playback mode.  If I hit the INFO button once (while in playback) I get most of the relevant info, such as shutter speed and aperture, but instead of also giving ISO info it tells me the shot number.  If I hit info again I get the whole histogram and all info including ISO, but its annoying to have to go that far and then back out every time I am curious about what ISO was just shot.  Only real complaint of the camera so far, and hopefully I'm just missing something....

Doubt it. It's the same on the 7D.

It is a bit annoying but there's only so much info that will fit in the small space that you get for info on the first button press.

To be able to customise that would be extra firmware, etc. etc..
Canon 5D3  ,  70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II ,  24-105mm f/4 L IS  ,  50mm f/1.4  ,  85mm f/1.8 ,  EF 2x III
Olympus OM2-SP , 50mm f/1.2 , 55mm f/1.2 , 50mm f/1.4 Silvernose , 135mm f/2.8 , 28mm f/2.8

The ISO would not really be that much extra space and is an important parameter of shooting.  I would much rather have it than the shot number, who the hell cares about that more than ISO?

I thought about the exact same thing today while playing with the camera. It's that I sometimes fumble around with the magnification and the playback, as I'm not used to the new layout yet. Pressing INFO while in magnification mode doesn't do anything.

slight tangent, i am hearing iso a stop better on the mk3...  is that true?  might be worth the upgrade if so....

Its JPEG engine is definitely better, such that 12800 is very usable. Take that for what it's worth. RAW ISO, on the other hand, perhaps someone else can better quantify it for you as I haven't done major comparisons yet.
