In today’s video, I’ll demonstrate a quick and easy ISO test that will help you overcome your high ISO fears. Come along for the ride and embrace using a higher ISO! And while you’re here, learn all about our current giveaway with three awesome prizes!

Sorry, I don't agree with the idea of forgetting about ISO — given
one is at a higher level, Alex.

It all comes down to greater DR in camera AND the power to re-
solve that DR with proper recovery tools eventually — and this is
meant to purposely preserve the best conditions to critical focus.

As always in this quest, the histogram is your best friend.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
