K10d: Manual ISO setting in Aperture Priorty Mode

I know this may be a simple question. I am a recent convert to digital after many years of of shooting velvia 50/100 film. I am getting used to my new k10d. Is there a way to lock the ISO into 100 in aperture priority mode, Instead of setting it to auto 100-200 iso. I do trust digital quite yet and would like to keep the iso at the lowest setting. Thanks

I have looked through the manual and the menus and can't find where you do that except in manual mode.

If you have firmware 1.00, you press th Fn button, then the navigation pad to the right to access ISO, then the navigation pad up or down till you have the ISO you want. With firmware 1.30, you can change ISO in Av mode with the front e-dial. In Tv mode, the rear e-dial will do the same, unless you went in the set up menus and changed the operations of those e-dials.

Hey bkhphoto,
Use the fn button and right button on the four way controller to set iso.

Thanks for all the responses.... you set me on the right track... I was able to go into the custom functions and have it do exactly what I wanted it to.

How do you know what firmware you have? I just got a new/used K10-d camera and it didn't have the manual. I see it's online, but that a pain to have to go to the computer every time you have a question.

It's one of the fields in the EXIF data attached to your photos. Or you can hold down the menu button on the camera, then turn the camera on. The firmware version will show up on the rear LCD.

In all modes except Sv and TAv press the "Ok" button and change the ISO with the front eDial. ISO is displayed in the viewfinder and the top LCD panel. You can customize this to the front or back eDial in the setup menu. You can select EV steps of 1/2 (default) or 1/3 stops in the setup menus too.
