Yes Limit it to 200 or 400 CLint I...go to Menu scroll down to ISO Limit Set and set...also use the ISO button that is on the right of the 4-way control panel on the rear of the camera and set to whatever you want...

I don't get it.
The more bracing, or stilling of the camera if you will, the more IQ you are going to get...people talk all these high Mp's yada-yada, and when you shake or vibrate the camera it stirs this "bees nest" of Mega Pixels up and they get a soft shot or poor IQ and then all of a sudden the "camera is at fault"...sound familiar?

Stabilize your shots 10 different ways if you have to...use a breathing technique to depress the shutter and take the photo without shaking the camera...

Make this a habit...you will get very good IQ photos without blur...and noise, my belief is a camera generates more noise if vibrated or shaken during the photo...

I have it set to 400 but when I change to the macro mode it seems to choose for itself. The ISO button on the right has no effect.

OK - I set ISO Sensitivity to AUTO - Limit to 400. Now macro mode won't go over 400 but apparently I can't override it. My ISO button still won't let me choose.

If I switch to the P mode is will let me override the ISO with the button but not in Macro mode.

How stable is the MXC34 with the legs extended?

Great unless you are in a high gusting wind condition, otherwise it holds steady Clint...

Thanks for info.
I'm not comfortable with idea of monopod the way it works.
Will get a tripod to start with.
