    I have a Nikon D3100, shooting on manual. It’s been shooting fine the last few days, I’m learning how to adjust aperture, shutter, and ISO to fit the needs of what I’m shooting. Today I turned it on and everything it shoots in massively underexposed. I’ve adjusted everything to try and fix it...

    Get less ISO noise at higher ISO sensitivity

    This has been verified by me with EF bodies from 2003 EOS 10D up to 2015 EOS 5Ds R. RF bodies like the 2020 EOS R5 & 2022 EOS R7 may have this. Owners may want to verify. To reduce whatever ISO noise Canon has a weird ISO increments of every ISO 160. So ISO - 160 - 320 - 640 - 1250 - 2500 -...

    Difference between low and high ISO colour film

    I know there will be more grain using a high ISO film, but I was wondering will there be any difference in the colour performance? For example, two properly exposed images with the same colour intensity using ISO 200 and ISO 400 film respectively, will the one using ISO 400 perform better in...

    Unittic Light Meter

    Hello, I recently inherited a Voigtlander Vito B manual camera and a Unittic light meter. I have no idea how to work the light meter, and after some research I am still very confused, as most demonstrations online have meters with ASA windows which this does not. Does anyone have experience with...

    Change ISO while recording video

    Hello, I have a Fuji X-T20 and just found out that I can't change the ISO while recording video. Is this common in most digital dslrs? Is this feature not important in video? Thanks in advance!

    Calculating shutter in low light to avoid motion blur

    Hi everyone, there are two problems with this picture. The first is that, somehow in the process of changing from my 24-70mm to my 70-200mm VR2 lens on my D500, the Qual button was pushed and the shutter speed dial rotated, changing my RAW+Fine to NORMAL I was nearly entirely through the shoot...

    Auto ISO with manual mode. Am I making a mistake ?

    Hi All, I'm using a Nikon d810, and my go-to default setting is to use auto-iso in manual mode. I can quickly change the aperture and shutter speed, which are the most common variables I change when having to quickly pick up my camera and get that moment. Obviously, the camera then sacrifices...

    What Really Are The Right Settings?

    So I definitely understand what each setting is and the matter of counterbalancing them with each other to create a good looking image. But I have learned a large part of my photography from doing lowlight with fairly limited gear. I had always gone straight for lowering my aperture to 2.8 or...

    Shooting the Stars

    I've been practicing shooting the stars, but they don't turn out as good as I wish they would. Any tips on how to do better long exposures? I shoot on a crop sensor if that has any impact on my results. I would eventually like to do time lapses of the galaxy.

    D500 and ISO problems

    Hi, I just upgraded from a D300 to a D500, and the pictures I took at a kids party yesterday are very grainy. My first thought is the ISO setting was too high, but I'm not sure. This is using my 16-85mm. It was an overcast day with no direct sun. I had it set for Aperture Priority, and the ISO...
