What is ISO? Discover how your camera’s sensitivity to light is measured and when you should increase your camera’s ISO setting.
In this tutorial we’ll show you how to take the grain with the gain and lose your fear of shooting in the dark at high ISO settings!
Don’t waste time juggling the ISO between shots! In this tutorial we show you why Auto ISO can work in your favour when light levels are low and unpredictable.
You can get some great pictures in low light, but only if you know how, and when, to use your camera’s ISO settings. In this tutorial we show you everything you need to know.

The landing of NASA’s newest rover, Curiosity, on the Mars landscape marks another small step for the American space agency, but it represents one giant leap for photographers everywhere.
Here are our 6 easy tips you can use for making sure all your Mars landscape photos are keepers.
SLR technology is always improving, and one key area is the image quality of photos shot at high ISO settings. But what if you don’t have the newest SLR or have raw images with potential that are suffering from image noise? Help is at hand! By utilising the power of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) software, it’s possible to rescue noisy raw images in a flash.
Readers often tell us that one of their most common photography problems is forgetting to adjust the ISO settings on their camera when switching between indoor and outdoor shooting. Many often ask if their camera has a reminder they can set. Well, kind of…
If you’re new to photography you may have asked yourself, ‘What is ISO?’
Back in the days before digital, film came in a variety of different speeds. The ‘faster’ the film, the more sensitive it was to light – allowing you to use faster shutter speeds than with ‘slower’ film.
Using these higher-sensitivity film emulsions was useful for moving subjects – and particularly so in low light. This film speed was measured using a number of different scales – with two of the best known, the American ASA and German DIN scales, eventually being brought together to give us the standardised ISO system.
