Any way to get a lower ISO than 400?

By accident somehow I remember seeing it at 200, but now for the life of me I can't seem to get it any lower than 400 no matter what setting it's on. I'm at work and my manuals at home...otherwise I would proably read that.

TIA.

Well I just noticed this nice "Similiar Threads" feature below and found the possible solution. Although I did search before posting somehow I missed that one. Feel free to remove this thread!

Thanks for the help Tim & Chris!

Right! That's what I'll try! Also someone said "Turn on Expanded Sensitivity in Custom Menu 1."in addition to that.

This usually increases your processing time.

This will enable you to select ISO ranging from 100-25600

There are 2 options to set ISO
- Set range (Allows you to set max ISO for any shot you take)
- Fix ISO (ISO is fixed irrespective of what your exposure is)

I think you have accidently set your ISO fixed to 400.

you can change it by using the 4-way directional key (one with ISO printed on it)

Hope this helps
