There is just one thing left were I still struggle with my XH1. This is the Auto ISO function.
The automatic function seems not to go beyond selecting ISO 500.
My ISO AUTO settings are:
DEFAULT SENSITIVITY 200
MAX. SENSITIVITY 12800
MIN. SHUTTER SPEED 1/30 (Auto 1), 1/120 (Auto 2), 1/500 (Auto 3)
ISO wheel set to "A". Manual focussing and aperture.
After taking a series of shots, at the same time changing light conditions and/or choosing another point for measuring exposure, I realized that the automatic had chosen ISO 500 for ALL of them. Independent of the light situation, aperture or shutter speed.
With some being obviously underexposed at the preferred aperture of f/8 or f/5.6, Auto-ISO still did not increase ISO, so I had to stop down to f/2.8 needing to make a choice between depth and exposure.
As far as I remember I had tried both, automatic shutter speed and manually selected after realizing that Auto-SIO was stuck at 500. So, should not have been the point but just to be sure ... Does Auto-ISO work only with shutter speed being on "A"? The manual is not clear on that. In my naive understanding a manually selected shutter speed should simply override the MIN. SHUTTER SPEED value.
But even if this would have been the issue, it is not clear to me why generally ISO 500 of all ISOs was auto-selected for very different light situations?
