ISO default on start up

I have a k50 I most always shoot I iso 100. But if I ever change for night shooting I can never remember to change it back. Is there a way to make it always start up on ISO 100?

if you use "user mode" for night shooting, then whatever settings you put for iso in that user mode won't be there in your usual mode of shooting.

I don't think you can set the ISO to 100 at start (except for modes without auto ISO), but you can disable memory for ISO, and then it always will start with auto ISO, which is the default ISO setting in most modes . See page 217 in the K50 manual.

I always disable the memory for ISO, white balance and EV compensation. Then the camera always start with auto ISO, auto WB, and zero EV comp.

That is an interesting approach that I had never considered. Thanks for the reminder of that useful setting.
