Buy the ebook sold in the marketplace here. Much better manuals.

To change modes turn dial to M. If dial won't turn push the button on top of the dial.

To set iso push iso button, spin wheel. To set back to auto iso, press green button after pressing and holding iso button.

Hello and welcome to the Forums.
What kind of problems are you having More information will get better answers. Also what mode are you having trouble controlling the ISO?
