But what you can do is dial in 1.5 (or 1.3 or 1.7 depending on your settings) additional base minimum speed. Use the auto adjustments for what it's intended (I think), which is different scenarios not cameras, and then it scales properly since you already put the pixel density factor into the base speed.

I interpret the +/- auto adjustments more about scenario/subject, so for example if it's really pretty dark, I might dial it down to trade a bit of camera shake to avoid being in the stratosphere of ISO, or I might dial it up if what I'm shooting is more action oriented (I realize the auto scaling is more about focal length and camera shake than action, but usually if the subject is moving fast so is my camera to follow).
