- 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 ISOs 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 modify the ISO, hold the ISO button down.…
Then turn the command dial to choose a new ISO.…You could choose settings…that range from ISO 100 to ISO 6400.…With higher ISOs, you'll increase the likelihood…of adding noise.…You'll also find settings like high, 0.3, 0.7, one and two.…These are additional stops beyond 6400.…Because these settings, though, yield quite a bit…of noise and color distortion,…I recommend that you avoid them,…reserving them as a last resort…when it comes down to getting the shot…or not getting the shot.…
It's always a good idea, though,…
