Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing ISO, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
One of the great advantages of digital cameras over film is that you can change…the ISO from shot to shot with your digital camera.…As you increase ISO, you can use faster shutter speeds and smaller apertures.…You will most often increase ISO when light levels drop low enough that your…shutter speeds go too low for handheld shooting. But you might also increase…ISO, if you want to use smaller apertures to capture deeper depth of field.…If you're not clear on when and how to effectively use ISO, check out my…Foundations of Photography: Exposure course.…
Changing ISO on the Rebel is very simple and you can see here on the LCD screen…what my current ISO setting is. I'm at Auto.…If I half-press to meter, you are going to see this change. It changed to 100.…That's to let me know that Auto mode has automatically selected an ISO of 100 and…now the metering just timed out, so it's gone back to Auto.…If I want to change it to something other than Auto, my ISO button up here, I just press that,…I don't have to hold it down,…
