Hey man,

I just wanted to respond to an older video of yours. You stated you had a pet-peeve with the D7000's ISO sensitivity button location. However, I came across a way to solve that problem and I wanted to share it with you.

I'm not sure if you read these comments, so I'll try to email it as well.

The solution: essentially assign your FN button to ISO sensitivity. Apparently its not obvious how you can do that so just follow these steps --

Setup "My Menu" such that Iso Sensitivity Control is the top item, then assign Fn button to "Select Top item in My Menu". After this you are free to either change the My Menu tab to Recent Items if you like that more (it will keep the Fn button assigned to Iso) or populate My Menu with other items you like.

hope that helps

@nicka - Thanks for the input. That's a creative work around, but it still doesn't fix my pet peeve. I'd prefer a dedicated ISO button. Your work-around, while creative, still requires you to bring the camera down from shooting position and view the LCD to make changes. A dedicated ISO button on the top allows for ISO changes on the fly while shooting without having to take your eye off the shot. Thanks though!
