TAV max iso 400?

What am I missing? I got my K20D yesterday, and when i switch to TAV it wont adjust the iso past 400. Is there something in the custom menu i need to adjust? Thought i read the manual, but maybe i missed it. Thanks!

The max will be the same as the auto iso max. This is adjustable in the Fn menu.

hmm, my auto max is set to 3200 I believe. Ill have to look into this further. Thanks, and when I say it caps out at 400, I mean it hits 400 then starts blinking. If i keep going to where I'd expect a higher iso, I dont get one but instead an underdeveloped image.

If you press the Fn button and then press the right arrow key that takes you to iso.
Press the up arrow until auto is highlighted. The green bar down the scale tells you the max. The rear button lets you adjust it. That sets the max your iso will go before you run out of exposure parameter.
Also, if you are in Tav mode you don't have to put it in auto iso, it is already there. You can also set a minimum limit too.
I just tried it an my K20 just to make sure I wasn't talking through my hat.

I used TAv on my K20D up to 4500, so it can be done.
