New Camera day 28 - Legoman gets close and personal with ISO
“Hi! It’s me again, Legoman” “ISO is fairly straightforward, so won’t keep you for long. The pictures say it all really, as the ISO doubles, the shutter speed halves. The ISO is the sensitivity of your camera sensor (or film) to light. The higher the number, the more sensitive it is, and the faster it can capture an image. This is useful at night when you don’t have a tripod or for fast-moving sports.” “The problem is that not every pixel is captured properly at a high ISO and this results in ‘Noise’ – the speckly, grainy dots that you can see. This usually isn’t wanted, unless you are aiming for grainy retro looking B&W images.” “The best things come to those who wait… so take your tripod!” All photos taken at f/11 in fairly low light & I reckon that it performs reasonably up to ISO 400 - then it goes pear shaped - what do you think?
