Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video ISO (ASA), part of Photography 101 (2012).
To explain ISO, it might be easier if I step back in time a little bit, and talk …about film. For those of you that used to buy film, …you'll recall that you had to buy it based off of its speed, called the ISO, …or even the ASA. Typical film speeds would be 100, like …this one here, or maybe 200, or 400, and those were pretty common speeds you'd …buy, like in a grocery store for example. If you went to a specialty store, an …actual photography store, you might be able to buy film that was even higher …speed, like 800, 1600, or even more than that. …So, what do all these numbers mean? Well, if you're shooting in extreme light …situations, like full on, outdoor sun, you can shoot at ISO 100.…
ISO 100 is great because that gives you the cleanest shot possible. …Very, very light or basically no grain at all. …As you get into lower light situations, you needed film that was more sensitive. …So if you're shooting indoors for example, you might shoot at iso 400 which …is going to give you a more sensitive film, but that film is going to give you a grain. …
