What is Auto ISO Shift?

What is Auto ISO Shift?

The Auto ISO feature tells the camera to change the exposure based on the changing light. As the light in the scene dims, the shutter speed will drop to let in more light, to ensure a correct exposure. When it hits the “minimum” shutter speed that was set, the ISO increases to keep the exposure correct.

How do I turn on auto ISO on Nikon d800?

To enable auto ISO sensitivity control, select On for ISO sensitivity settings > Auto ISO sensitivity control in the shooting menu. Choose the maximum value available for auto ISO sensitivity control (200–Hi2). The minimum is ISO 100.

What is the best ISO setting?

Guidelines to choosing the best ISO setting

  • 100 or 200 best ISO for outside pictures on a sunny and bright day.
  • 400 ISO for cloudy days, or indoors for window light portraits.
  • 800 ISO for indoors without a flash.
  • 1600+ ISO for really low light situations – that school play your kid is in.

What is the minimum shutter speed?

In general, the guideline is that the minimum handheld shutter speed is the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. So, if you’re using a 100mm lens (and remember to account for crop factor) then the slowest shutter speed you should try and use is 1/100th of a second. For a 40mm lens, it’s 1/40th of a second.

The D800 / D800E have a lot of menu options, but there are some things that you can only control with external controls. On the front left of the camera, you will find a lever that goes from AF to M, with a button in the middle (big red circle in the image below).

What do shooting banks do on a Nikon D800?

The first one is “Shooting menu bank”, which allows you to store up to 4 different shooting menu settings. The good news is, you can name each bank with a custom name like “Landscape”, “Portrait”, etc. The bad news is, these shooting banks are completely useless!
