"Auto ISO with a Hot-Shoe Mounted Flash"


US
          

The behaviour of the Auto ISO algorithm is consistent when using the camera pop-up flash in slow mode as well. Unfortunately, things are weirder when using a hot-shoe mounted flash, such as an SB-400. In this case, the camera increases the ISO sensitivity up to four times the value currently selected and won't raise it any more, even if you selected a greater maximum ISO.

As per the blog
http://thegreyblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/weird-auto-iso-behaviour-on-nikon-d5100.html

The 1.01 firmware seems to fix this undocumented "feature": the Auto ISO behaviour is the same when using either the pop-up flash or a hot-shoe mounted flash.

However My 5100 (bought recently) has firmware 1.01 but it is still exhibiting the same problem. Has anyone else also faced this issue ?
