Having problems with your Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera ?

How do I change the ISO on this camera?

\015 How do I change the ISO settings on this camera?\015\012I am taking indoor staging photos (dark background with stage lighting and screens). What settings do you recommend and how to access the settings.\015

Answers :

Press the Menu button, select the camera icon, then scroll down to Sensitivity to change the ISO setting.

Depending on how close to the stage you are and how long your lens is, I would consider using spot-metering on the performers so as not to let the camera try to make the black background into a medium gray. The metering method is also changed in the shooting menu. Press Menu, select the camera icon, and scroll down.

Anyway you do it, you're probably going to have slow shutter speeds. If you can't use a tripod, consider a monopod. Or clamp the camera to the back of the seat in front of you. Or brace it against a wall or column.
With no other menu open, press the Fn button (beside the LCD screen). The ISO setting is selected by pressing "right" on the directional button. You then select the ISO and press OK.

The other responder mentioned using spot metering. I'd like to suggest looking at the "Link AF Point and AE" and "AE-L with AF Locked" settings in the Custom menu in order to maintain autofocus after using spot metering to set your exposure. Depending on the settings, you could have the ability compose your photo and update the focus after setting your exposure.
