GS400 and ISO

Hello everyone,

I read that some high end digital still camera mentioned about ISO, i.e.http://www.dpreview.com/articles/canoneos20d/page2.asp

Reference
www.vectortrust.com/articles/ISO_film_speed.html

But I search english manual of GS400 about keyword ISO, and can't find anything.

Can anyone tell me where can I change ISO settings?

TIA
Leigh

Leigh, I think you're expecting a little too much from the still camera function of the GS400. I think the most you can adjust on the GS400 is manual focus, iris, shutter, and white balance.

Sounds like maybe you need a dedicated still camera....

Dear Tommy,

I just want to familar all the feature of the camera and experience it. GS400 is my first camera to take still digital photo and I am very happy about that.

Regards

I'm also a big fan of digital stills from camcorders. There are a lot of times when I'm caught without my digital camera and have made decent shots from my camcorder. Camcorders tend to take reallly good macro shots often letting the lens hood come in contact with your subject.

Here a few stills from my past Sony PDX10 and Panasonic PV-DV953

Dear Tommy,

I agree with you it is quite easy to take macro shot with my gs400. But I have difficulty to take wide shot by using my gs400. Is there any hint how to do that properly?

Regards
Leigh

Do you have a wide angle adapter?
