yeah i do that alot too. I'll be taking some pictures on iso 250 or 400 of my dog running around like nuts and then i'll switch to my 50mm 1.8 lens for a close up picture of somebody and i'll forget to switch my ISO. Just have to make it a priority to check your ISO often.
Every time I turn my camera off, I always switch back to 200 from whatever I am doing. The same goes for other settings such as single/continuous shooting, AF/MF etc...
I also quickly scan my settings on the LCD every time I turn it on. Good habits to get into.
I just did that today!
The other night we were camping and I took some pictures at the campfire at night, ISO 1600.
Today I drove all through the countryside taking pictures of farms, churches, fields, only to get home to grainy pictures and thinking WTF??
I used to do that frequently too. I usually remember to check it now, because of that error. It destroyed several otherwise excellent images. Frankly, I wish my camera would reset to ISO 100 every time I turned it off.
Absolutely! .... reaches for the Cuervo
I thinkI did that once, but I can't remember as the photos I took immediately went in the recycling folder!
I've kept the ISO on 400 instead of 200 a couple of times, though. Didn't affect the images too much.
No big deal. Just run them through any of the noise reduction plug-ins and you'll be fine.
Heh, they were awful photos anyway I have this really bad habit of deleting photos that aren't up to my exacting standards.
not for me. At 1600, they are still grainy even after noise reduction.
none of my photos had any noise at 800 so i guess i'm ok
