ISO max value at 800 when 20mpx

Hello, can you please tell me whether it is normal that in manual mode, when I select the maximum resolution (20mpx), I can only set the ISO to a maximum of 800? If I set the resolution to 8mpx, I can set the ISO to 3200. If this is a common behaviour, can you please tell me why?

 

Regards

Re: ISO max value at 800 when 20mpx

Hi @an0n1m0,

 

If you set your camera to Superior Auto the camera will automatically change its ISO sensitivity to best match the surroundings in which you take the picture. If you want to automatically change your ISO settings you can do so in manual mode.

 

You can change the value for ISO sensitivity to be between 50 and 3200 manually depending on what resolution you use. Use the High sensitivity as Scene selection to take photos without a flash under low light conditions. This reduces blur.

 

Let me know if there is anything else you are wondering about! Slightly smiling Face

Re: ISO max value at 800 when 20mpx

Thank you for your answer! I also wanted to ask another question related to ISO...do you know why the ISO setting is available only through the official app and not via third party apps? Is this because the official one uses a non-standard API to set ISO manually?

I'm afraid I don't have any information about why the ISO settings are not available to third party apps. Slightly frowning Face
