Use High ISO when Photographing

Use High ISO when Photographing

We often use high ISO (above 800) when faced with these situations: in low lighting, when we need a high shutter speed, when we don’t want to use the flash, and when we didn’t bring a tripod to a photoshoot. The biggest concern we have when increasing ISO to more than 800 is the visibility of noise in the results; tiny spots scattering through out the photograph.
But you can now rest easy, because now that concern continues to be minimized with the advancement of time and technology.

Here are a few reasons to be more confident when using those high ISO settings:

1. The advancement of the Camera Technology.
The majority of new generation SLRs are equipped with a very reliable noise reduction technology. We can now shoot at an ISO of 1800 and still get a satisfactory result. As far as I know, almost every DSLRs available from Nikon or Canon, from the beginner cameras to the pro cameras, are great at getting rid of noise due to high ISO. Now, even high quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) is equipped with this noise reduction technology as well. Read the rest of this entry »
