Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing ISO, part of Up and Running with the Canon 6D.
…ISO is a useful adjustment that modifies the sensitivity of your camera's sensor.…As you increase ISO, you can use faster shutter speeds and smaller apertures.…This is a typical adjustment you'll make when shooting in lower light.…Keep in mind though that higher ISO's can add some noise, but the benefit is,…is that they give you the option to use smaller apertures to capture deeper depth…of field, and to use faster shutter speeds to truly freeze the action.…To change ISO, press the ISO speed setting button.…
Then turn the command dial to choose a new ISO.…Press the set button to apply the change, or just wait for…the camera to auto apply the item.…You can choose between settings that range from ISO 100, to ISO 25600.…With higher ISO's, you increase the likelihood of adding noise.…Because these settings yield a lot of image noise and…color distortion, You should use them as a last resort, essentially when it…comes down to being very dark and you don't want to use the flash.…
Is it the choice of getting the shot, or missing the shot?…
