    Hi,

    I have a Rollei 6008 Integral 2. It came with one magazin/back, which works fine.

    I bought a 6006 back, which I know won't communicate ISO automatically with the body but should still work. The problem is that I've read that it's supposed to default to ISO 100 when it can't detect a back (or a 6006 back is used). It's not - it's defaulting to ISO 25.

    Any idea why this would happen or how I can change it to default to ISO 100?

    Thanks,

    mark

    Try changing the exposure compensation, which is how you will adjust the ISO.

    Thanks. I finally figured that out. If you have the exposure compensation set and then mount the back, it sets it to that ISO. I had 2 stops comp in when I mounted the back, so it set the ISO to 25. Once mounted/set, I could change the comp to what I wanted.
