 How often do you guys adjust exposure compensation or ISO? I found that I was constantly adjusting the exposure compensation on my Nikon D5000 from shot to shot. I'm usually shooting in A,S or P…Continue

"Just think a few years back. I hope you have some basics ideas about photography. Think you have your film camera in your hand. What ISO setting you have done? It is ISO 50 or 100 or 200 as the film you have purchased. That means ISO is fixed you…"

"Like all auto controls there are times when it's best overridden. My old camera has a max ISO of 3200, which is generally too noisy, (but I use it manually when I have no other option - such as shooting Infra red pictures) In most cases I find…"

"My problem with auto ISO is that as ISO increases, grain (noise) increases.  Some cameras handle higher ISO values better than others and which values are unacceptable is a personal decision, which may even depend on the individual photo being…"

Mike Kanssen replied to Lingwei's discussion Exposure correction/settings
"I disagree. Auto ISO still gives you control of DOF in Av mode (generally my most common setting) alternatively if your creative requirements need a particular shutter speed there full control of that in Tv. Indeed you can even fix both in manual…"

"It's been that way since I bought it.... (Didn't know enough then to have a clue about anything.) Easier, at this point to just let it be but that is a good thought and I'll look into it. Thanks."

"If your camera is consistently under exposing by 3 stops, it suggests it is time for service."

"I shoot in A or M on my D5000. I set the function button to ISO and use it frequently if I can't get what I want with ap and ss. I tend, also, to keep my exposure compensation at +3. If I am to trust the light meter (which is the barometer by…"

"That was (is) my first choice, however, I have a hard time justifying the several thousand dollars difference in price; unfortunately.  My ultimate choice would be a full frame square digital back for my beloved Hasselblads.  It's…"

"  To be honest, thats not a very good way of working at all. Auto ISO is probably one of the most amateur features added to a camera ever. If you have an asperations of taking decent photos, then switch that off. Permantely. Never ever switch…"

"The Canon 1Ds Mk III has no mode dial.  There is a mode button and once pressed you can cycle through the 4 modes available:  M, Av, Tv, and P.  There is no movie mode.  There are no scene modes.  It has a 21.5 Mpx full…"

"Learning it without a digital camera was actually quite a bit simpler, as far as I'm concerned.  I have learned for instance how to do fill flash ratios in my head in about 2 seconds, and I new what I was going to get.  So it…"

"My camera allows the ISO range of the auto setting to be limited. I've set it to go from the base up to the just before noise starts to become a problem.  This is ideal for grab shots, so I try & leave my camera in auto ISO (and P…"
