Read this on another forum about making good use of the function button.Having read it (but not yet tested it), it seems that the button can be assigned to anything that the menus have to offer - I'm liking that..."To set the ISO with the 'preview' or 'fn' button in front of the D600, do the 2 easy steps:1- Go to: 'My Menu', 'Add items', Shooting menu', 'ISO sensivity settings', 'ISO sensivity' and choose it with the OK button.2- Go to: 'Custom setting menu', 'Controls', 'Assign preview button' (or Fn button), and choose 'Access top item in MY MENU'.There you go! You can change ISO on the fly with only your right hand, it's really fast and easy!"

This is a good idea, if not a new one - thanks! It's been tried and found to work well for several Nikon DSLR's over the years - here is one discussion about it from 2010 in our D700 Forum

Cheers, Brian - as you can see, some of these options are new bits for me (kid in a a sweet shop!).I notice you're in Paignton - I saw the eclipse there a few years ago - lovey town

Yes, we think this is a lovely part of the country, Ben We moved here about 6 years ago, but stayed with my father (who lived in Brixham then) to see the eclipse in 1999.

This is FABULOUS! I hope this is possible on my D300, because I intend to try it tonight when I get home. I love it when I discover nuggets like this here at Nikonians!

I change custom setting d3 to "Show ISO/Easy ISO" and then just change ISO with the main command dial in aperture priority mode.Rocky
