Would you normally use this with aperture priority mode....Would it make sense to use with shutter priority too or is that just...erm, dumb ?

Using Auto ISO with Shutter Priority isn't dumb or pointless, but it is less flexible than with Aperture Priority or Manual.

The way that Nikon's Auto ISO works, in Shutter Priority there is no way to control or limit the aperture setting, so in dark conditions the camera would always open the lens to maximum before increasing the ISO, and in bright light it would always go to the smallest aperture before reducing the ISO. If you're happy with that and you must use a particular shutter speed, there's no problem...!

Autoiso is to stay above a certain certain shutter speed. I don't think it can be set to stay below a certain aperature.

My reply crossed with Brian's.

So there is some reason to use it in shutter priority mode. Thanks.

I've dedicated U2 to Auto-ISO with Manual Mode, and find this combination very good for low-light tele work. I just define the shutter speed and aperture I'm willing to take, and let Auto-ISO figure out the correct exposure.

It's like having a dial with P, M, A, S and "I", the fifth mode. Makes a lot of sense, really. In either A, S or "I", I've got the front and rear dials setting two parameters of the exposure triangle, and the camera selecting the third one to get the desired amount of light recorded.

It's the only use I have for Auto-ISO, really.

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.

I use aperture mode with Auto ISO and then select minimum shutter speed in Auto ISO menu according to what I'm taking shots of... Works good for me so far..
