Sen­si­tiv­ity (ISO or ASA)

Motorcycle Monthly - - Knowledge -

This set­ting de­ter­mines how sen­si­tive the sen­sor, or film, is to light. On a sunny day out­side an ISO (ASA for film – the same thing es­sen­tially) set­ting of 100-250 ISO should be fine. On a cloudy or murky day, 400-800 ISO would be more suit­able, while in­doors at a show, 1600 ISO or higher will be the only way to get a good shot. The higher the sen­si­tiv­ity, the darker you can shoot in, but the qual­ity of the im­age will suf­fer with noise, or grain on film, mak­ing the im­age look ‘gritty’.
