I do have a tripod, yes. Would that affect the ISO?
You can then use the base ISO with a tripod.
Ah. How does that work then?
Turn the dial into Av, then control the aperture, and set ISO to 100. One of the top small buttons by the Top LCD, press the ISO one, then turn the dial to change from auto to 100.
Oh yeah I know that, I meant, why does putting it on a tripod mean using a lower ISO. But the penny has dropped! I guess you mean no camera shake, so I can use slower shutter speed which lets more light in and so lower ISO, right?
Yes, you can now open the shutter for hours !
I see. Very interesting! So let's say I'm taking the same photos of things in my kitchen at around 11pm. I'm on a tripod, I'm at base ISO and say, f4. What shutter speed might I use to get minimal noise on the image similar to base ISO during daylight on a faster shutter speed?
Anyway, I'll experiment with that.
Best thing I ever bought for indoor photography was a hotshoe flash. Just bounce it off the ceiling and you get sharp pictures ever time.
That's one accessory I've not thought much about. I've always thought photos using flash look awful and harsh and flatten an image, but that's on my phone. I'm guessing bouncing it like you suggested won't make it look like a flash has been used? Can you recommend a particular one to buy?
I use this one. You can buy cheaper ones but make sure it has ttl.
Yeah, a little expensive for me that one. Ok, needs TTL. This should be ok I think?
Yeah thats fine.
Also remember that when shooting distant objects the air itself is "dirty" and the warmer the day is the "dirtier" the air gets. This can really screw up the quality of the shot
You're never gonna get a sharp looking photo at a 100% crop, that's not really how camera sensors work. That above image is so cropped it's only 1.6mp which even 20 years ago would be crap.
