    ISO information is not required for DOF calculation. If it is DOF chart you are looking for, you can get it here:

    If it is for exposure setting, then no set of dials will tell you the correct setting unless you have a means to at least measure the illumination intensity.

    Alternatively, there is this thing called the Sunny-16 guide, but that is partly estimation, so will not be as accurate.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    as wat is being mentioned...

    i dun think anyone has this technology of having a dial to calculate the correct exposure, ie. wat settings to use etc.

    try reading abt the sunny 16 rule and find out the relations btw the shutter speed, aperture, iso. this will aid u in deciding ur settings
