k200d - how to put camera on auto iso from 400 to 800 ?

Hi

On k20d (just sold it to upgrade to k7) I used the front and rear wheel buttons to, for instance put auto iso between 400 and 800. On k200d there is only a back button, so how fdo I do it ?

Thanks in advance.

(Manual is in French and I can't deal with it )

If you mean you want the auto ISO to go to 400 at the lowest and 800 at the highest, you can't do that - it will always be 100 at the lowest. Seems there would be little point in setting it to 400 at the lowest. The camera won't choose an ISO below 400 if it doesn't think it can get a fast enough shutter speed, and if it *can* get a fast enough shutter speed at lower ISO, why not just let it? And if you need more control than that, then why use auto ISO at all?

You coud trick it to set ISO200 as lower limit, by enabling extended DR - FN button, while selecting ISO.
Tv (shutter priority) mode can be used as well to ensure required speed and put more emphasis on varying ISO.

I did and fit the purpose I intended.

Thanks to both !
