Default Canon EOS 7D : how to stop Auto ISO

Hello everyone..
I have a Canon EOS 7D digital SLR camera and I must admit that it is one of the best cameras I have ever before. I got it few weeks ago from buy.com through http://www.dealrocker.com discount deal. I really impressed with the overall performance and especially like Auto ISO feature. Now anyone can take good photos. Set the camera on auto and no need to explain how to use the camera. Does anyone know how can I stop Auto ISO? It's nice to have this feature, but at some times I prefer to set the ISO manually.

Thanks in advance.

Um... What mode are you shooting in? If in auto, GET OUT.

Any other mode you just hit ISO button and put it at desired ISO... Not much to it.

Might want to look at the manual :P

Press the ISO/EC button then turn the top dial to your desired ISO , auto ISO is indicated with a "A" . never used auto ISO myself .

Go into P, Av, Tv or M, then you control whether ISO is A or 100-12800.

Green box mode = point and shoot robotic mode

Does 7D have the same function as T2i where you can set max ISO?

on T2i you can set max iso to 800 for example and Auto iso will go from 100 to 800, but not above.

No

I would love to set my max ISO to 12800 and then put the 7D on auto-ISO.

I've found it to be useful on occasion in situations bordering low light/mixed light if I'm trying to keep a min shutter whilst wide open.
