I am shooting in a dark bowling alley. I want to freeze the action and not use flash.
When I select ISO sensitivity settings here is what my next screen shows:

ISO sensitivity - 200
Auto ISO sensitivity control: On
Max Sensitivity : 3200
Min Shutter Speed: 1/200

Now for this to work with this settings do I need to have the dial set for: Auto. Of course this would cause the flash to go off which I don't want. So do I set the dial to no flash.

I did take photos with the settings but looking at them later I notice some were taken at a shutter speed of 1/60 although I have a Min Shutter Speed of 1/200 selected. I did go back and fourth between Auto and P so maybe this is where I am confused.

One other question. At the above settings does this mean I would shot at a min ISO of 200 and a maximum of 3200?

Thanks.
