Can't select ISO-100 on K-30


I don't know if I am missing something but I the ISO range on my camera starts at 200 in both Auto and Manual modes, rather than 100 as it is supposed to.

I've browsed through the camera settings and the manual but unless I am missing something I wonder if this is a fault with my camera?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks Adam! That was indeed the issue...

I wonder if we are able to suggest a 'hint' be added to the manual to alert people to this in future?

Thanks again,
