Green mode ISO

After playing with my K3 I notice in green mode the ISO only goes up to 3200 no matter what program line it is in. Is there a way to change this?

Thanks

Randy

Just tried on my K3 and the auto ISO is always 100-3200 in Green Mode. I tried pushing the top to 51,200 with no results in Green Mode.

My K3 is current v 1.21 firmware. Green mode does not allow access to the ISO setting. Mr. Pentax overrides you.

I wouldn't be surprised if green mode limited the maximum ISO. I guess you'd have to use P mode to unlock the higher settings.

In green mode most (if not all) settings are locked in default (green) settings. ISO range is 100-3200 by default on K-3.

I believe the purpose of the green mode is just this, a quick way of temporary resetting the camera to default settings.
Can be useful when FI someone not used to a DSLR want to use the camera.

That does not surprise me, it being "green" mode after all.
