John, this solved it!

(the Dudes last name is Cannon!!!!)


I read this three times and digested it,. tried my camera waited the 8 seconds and made sure metering had stopped, AND I STILL COULD NOT get Auto ISO.....

BUT!
I was not concerned, because I had it set up to only let the ring work with * pressed so I could not accidentally bump it.
This is an option that once removed, and once I waited the 8 seconds, AUTO ISO was available!

One could also remove exposure lock from the * button if one really wanted to keep the two button lock to prevent accidental ISO bumping.

Thanks John!

I'm set the metering timer down to 4 seconds, and will try it like this for a while. Given the control ring has the detents, I am not overly concerned about bumping ISO accidentally, so worth a try. I rarely use the metering with the * button, so if I have to, I will rest it's function.

I sure do wish those guys could crack Digic 8. I think we'd be shocked at what's really inside this camera that Canon crippled on us.

ML really brought my 7D to life.

It's why I still have my 5dmkii and regret not getting the mkiii.

Doubt the R and 5mkiv (and 80d) will see it. Heard framework was in place but development seems to have stalled. :-(

Exposure compensation, seems like the perfect place for it.

Maybe the drummer gets not enough light, but it made for a great lighting situation in your shot. One of the better drummer shots I've seen.


Cheers,

Likewise. That sensor really needed help though.

It's a real shame Canon didn't incorporate more of ML into their later cameras. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall in some of Canon's meetings, it must have driven the marketing
team (and the engineers) nuts.

I went from a 7D with ML to an a7r and the lack of functionality drove me mad (along with a few other things...) I eventually gave up and went to a 6D with ML and was much more content.

Mine's set for exposure compensation. And thanks to John's revelations I can now set ISO to AUTO in Fv on demand.

I frequently touch the LCD by mistake when I'm carrying the camera and it often results in me knocking the camera off AUTO ISO and I really struggled to understand why I couldn't re-select AUTO... Drove me mad!

Anyway, changed the exposure lock to 4 seconds and learned to chill until I can select AUTO again... Happy days! (Obviously I'm too impatient to wait for 8 seconds or I might have worked it out myself!) :-)

This is what I was doing, but really wanted to use the control ring instead.

-

I shoot in Manual mode almost always so my control ring is set for ISO. Love how easy it is to change it.

What I don't love is that when I use the "LOCK" function it doesn't seem to apply to the control ring. Found that out the hard way while doing headshots with studio lighting.

Thankfully the R files have a lot of wiggle room. Thank you for the complement!
