I have spent time checking all the settings on the new camera Nikon D5000 digital SLR. What I’m basically trying to find out is setting has the greatest impact of the overall image quality. One of my first setting a check image size settings are larger because the image size settings, more detailed picture will end up having.
But let’s assume that you’ve adjusted these settings to the highest resolution possible and now you are trying to improve image quality even more. What I found so far is that setting that has the next highest impact on overall image quality is the ISO setting.
What ISO setting?
A digital camera ISO settings are used to adjust the light sensitivity of the camera image sensor. Lights you have less overall for your photo, the higher the ISO setting is required. More lights there are, the lower the ISO setting is required.
Problems with high ISO settings is that the higher you go, the more coarse or “noisy” image will be. For this reason, it is always best to shoot the lowest ISO setting possible.
Differences in the ISO Settings
To demonstrate the difference in image quality at two different ISO settings, I took a simple picture of a green apple on the setting of ISO 200, and then again at 3200 ISO settings.
In the example above, you can see that there was not much difference in picture quality between the picture on the left at ISO 200 and the photo at right, was shot at ISO 3200, but if you look closely, you can see the sounds made by firing at higher ISO settings.
To really show the difference this off, I took the original image and enlarged it (see below).
In this photo, you’ll see the difference and “noise” caused by high ISO settings in 3200.
In my camera, Nikon D5000, ISO setting can be changed by going into settings, and then the “Shooting Menu” option. By default, it’s set to “Auto”, however you can change the ISO settings between 200 to “H1“, which is the settings I used for the ISO 3200 setting in the image above.
What ISO settings Is Best?
With most of the Digital Camera, you must have access to the various ISO settings. Usually you will be able to select ISO 200, 400, 800, 1600. Questions ISO setting I use to get the best picture quality? The answer to this is .. quite simply, the best ISO setting to use will be the lowest ISO available light settings that are available to you own.
The challenge is that although you will not likely be able to shoot in the evening with the ISO set to the lowest – 200 for example – because the light sensor cameras require more light to capture your image.
Fortunately you have several options. The first option will set a longer exposure time (slower shutter speed). Another option is to increase the shutter speed on your camera lens (F stop settings). A third option would increase the ISO setting.
