Can you confirm "auto iso" is available when the dial is set to "M"...

The reason I ask this is because the HX20v doesn't have shutter priority, thus taking subjects moving swiftly might prove difficult- and I figured the only way around this would be to set the camera to "M",set the aperture wide open (lowest "f" number),dial in say 1/320th sec shutter speed and then set the iso to auto- which in effect would be the metering parameter- the iso automatically adjusting to keep exposure at a reasonable level with my shutter speed not compromised.

1 ISO cnnot be adjusted to Auto ISo.

2 in highest settings ofstill you are locked out on fetures.

This is how they get you to buy the better model. top end point-n-shoot, not a DSLR

Thanks for reply- though I am still a little perplexed....
This camera I believe has a manual mode (M on the dial)- are you telling me I could not adjust shutter speed and aperture setting in "M" mode...??? (bearing in mind I could do all of the above with my old TZ-10..!)

Not a proble, and thank you for the kind words

Tip my hat off to ya.

The cam is excellent, but if it does not suit your needs no one can force ya to get it , and this Point-n-shot does just fine..

I wished it had a usable port to allow external power. but not.

It has been a week and some, what it feels like, and so far no issues, other then that glitch?

Sony guess is the cam, i headed to Canon for a purchase, and well yep shop canceled order, due to recall? or just felt the price was to low.

Always enjoy a good cam, wished sony offered way more than just some features. especially an external power source.

remember seeing a video of a hdmi and external drive recording, Lol but yet no external power. not gonna mod a dumby battery, Lol

Well I just ignored the issue at hand, today received a code by mail from Sony, left my comment in the survey and prizes to be won. that made me feel 0% better Lol. at least Sony is caring, but yet to hear from the email I sent?

contented and happy
