Join Steve Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the power of auto ISO, part of Performance Tuning the Nikon D5500.
- I've been doing photography a long time.…I've been teaching photography a long time.…And really, the number one reason why many of…my students over the years in workshops and classes…have found that their picture ended up in the trash…instead of being framed and hung on the wall,…is that their shutter speed was too slow.…And as a consequence, they've got some blur.…And if that blur isn't helping the picture…as it sometimes does by creating the illusion of movement,…it's likely hurting the picture.…
There is a way to help…stop that from ever happening,…and it's called Auto ISO.…It's one of my favorite features on the D5500.…Before we get into it, I just want to talk…a little bit about ISO,…because the sensor, the 24 megapixel sensor in your D5500,…is obviously beautiful in terms of the quality.…But the high ISO capability is kind of extraordinary.…This isn't your grandfather's ISO.…Don't be afraid to migrate to higher numbers.…
Maybe 1600 is the new 400 when it comes to ISO.…I maintain it's better to have a sharper image…
