    I customized the right key as ISO adjustment.

    I can quickly adjust aperture or shutter speed, I want quick access to ISO as well.

    On later models of NEX, the right key is labelled as ISO, some can be customized but default to ISO.

    Thanks, is possible to have more extra custom keys, sort of virtual custom keys?

    Regards

    Do you have a camera manual for the F3? If not you can download one here. I believe the soft keys are what you're looking for.

    No, you are limited to the custom keys on the camera. But Sony would be glad to sell you a few more buttons - in the NEX-7.

    There are also those custom virtual keys to configure, but under my menu they appear as disabled... strange..

    It depends on what mode you are in. Switch to one of the manual modes and it should enable.

    It depends on which button these apply. If they are (like I think they are) for the center button within the scroll wheel, you first have to set the center button function to "custom" before you can assign these custom functions.
