"Can I do this in the D5000?"


US
          

I have a D5000 and an 18-105 mm afs zoom
I love that lens to death all the time. IMO that is the best lens Nikon has ever made,

but I like the biting sharpness even more when its stopped down a little. IMO F8 rocks.


Is there a procedure to set AUTO to give preference to aperture?

I know I can set aperture priority. It appears the computer would then set ISO and Speed automatically to best practices. Is that true?

Can I then set ISO in the I menu under aperture priority and it will then set only the speed to best practices?

sorry, this is hard to phrase, I think I have it figgered out but I don't want to miss something.

If you use Aperture Priority and turn off Auto ISO, then camera will then select shutter speed only. You can manually set the ISO to whatever you want/need.

Almost all lens will benefit by stopping them down a bit and it sounds like you have found the sweet spot on yours.

I do not have a D5000, I have a D80, but I would think you could set it up the same way. I use aperture priority and auto ISO with limits. Mine is set to default to ISO 100 but will increase as needed up to ISO 400.

You could also select an ISO without having it on Auto ISO and only the shutter speed would change.

yep, thats what I really want. I want aperture priority and the camera set iso and shutter speed but auto iso doesn't seem to function in A mode for me.

I prolly have some setting wrong but i don't know what it would be.

Maybe someone that has a D5000 can jump in and help you set up the auto ISO. It should work with Aperture priority but not in Auto mode, if it is the same as the D80.

While in aperture priority mode under "ISO sensitivity settings" it will not allow me to set AUTO under ISO sensitivity. It replies with "selection not available in this mode".

However, I can set ISO sensitivity auto control to ON and set the limits. works for me.

To set up my D80, I set my ISO Sensitivity to 100. In Custom Settings under ISO Auto I set to ON and the Max. Sensitivity I set to 400 and Min Shutter Speed I set to 1/60s.

Now the camera will default to ISO 100 until the Shutter needs to go below 1/60 and then it will adjust the ISO.
