    I have a canon t1i... now when i manually change the ISO settings i get options ranging from 100 all the way up to 3200.... if you go to canon site it says "Wide range ISO setting 100-3200 (ISO expansion: 6400, 12800)"... how do i get to this ISO expansion to shoot in the 6400 setting?

    You don't. If your in Tv Av P or M you hold the iso button and turn the wheel until you get to the Hi1 and Hi2 mode and that will be 12800. Beware the results will most likely be unusable and extremely noisy and grainy.

    If it's like my 40d, then you have to enable ISO expansion under the custom functions menu first.

    I don't think that is being a jerk at all. Reading the manual something everyone should do. I really hope you read yours. If anyone asked a question that could be found by taking a quick look at the manual and someone refers it to them they are being a jerk that's funny. So lets say someone asks a question and there is a sticky about their question and I post the link to the stick am I being a jerk?

    Suggesting they read the users manual is not a jerky thing to do.

    Now, if KmH had said something to the effect of "only an idiot would ask before reading the manual" that might be construed as being a jerk. This, I don't think so.

    no, because posting a link would actually be helpful.


    I am all for poking fun, but we're here to help each other, not just ridicule.



    and no, I didn't read my whole instruction manual. I've had questions about how to do things on my camera, and I've looked up the answers, but I'm not ready to sit down and read the whole thing.



    I'm just not down with internet tough guys who troll forums trying to make fun of new guys. If you're going to say something like that, you should still help the person out. Making fun and not helping is jerky. That's all I'm sayin.

    So I guess this would sound kinda dumb, but in what types of cases do the more experienced among us here use the expanded ISO?

    How was he making fun? RTFM. Far too many noobs are too damn lazy to do it these days and just want to be given the answers without doing the work on their own. Same thing as the ultra-vague "which camera should I get?" questions.

    I'm all for helping someone, but at the same time noobs need to find things on their own instead of asking to be spoonfed every little simple bit of info. In this case, finding the expanded ISO range is a question EASILY found in the manual.
