a7II customize rear dial for ISO

Recommended Posts

When I have to shoot fast in photo journalism, I don't have the time to bother with A or S, so I use the P setting and adjust using the front dial for a compromise.  But sometimes there is not enough light so I have to lower the camera, redial the ISO, set it and then, again, find my subject focus and shoot  -  and the picture is usually gone by then.  It seems to me that the two - front & rear dials work the same, a waste of a useful feature.  So, I would like to know if it is possible to customize the rear (only) dial to change the ISO.  That way I can keep the subject in sight while only turning one of two dials to set everything needed for a fast shoot.  This would work well, but I don't know if it is possible with the current software.

Any suggestions?

Not sure if that is possible; If you use ISO Auto, you could use M option which allows shutter/aperture to be changed with front and rear dials, the camera will set the correct ISO for those values.

Thanks.  I know I can set the ISO to auto but the separate use of both front and rear dials - rear for ISO - would be a great feature,  just like customizing the buttons.  Too bad Sony doesn't have this customization feature available for these dials.
