ACESS TO ISO ABOVE 1600 eg HO.3 HO.7 H1.0

How do I access the above and what programmes do they work with.

I purchased My D80 last OCTOBER and am very pleased with it but it is some times difficult to establish which function works with what programme and how to access them.

    haroldandjoy,

    What types of images are you trying to capture with the extreme end of the ISO range? Fast action, sports, lower level lighting? What's your familiarity with digital photgraphy? Are you going to create images with special effects in Photoshop? Let me know what you want to do with the images and that will help me provide a solution that best suits your needs.

They're equivalent to ISO 2000, 2500, and 3200, respectively. You just select them the same way you select any other ISO setting. They work with everything else in the camera. Just be aware that you're going to get more noise the higher you set the ISO.

I have a Canon PowerShot SX 10 IS. In Manual mode shows only black screen with icons. In Auto mode everything is fine.


Dear Olia,
Just a quick check on your camera. You have a focus issue so check the settings for the ISO - increase the value, eg. 800 or above and reduce the shutter speed. You can do that by the quick access dial (wheel) facing you. There are four direct access menus in a criss-cross direction. One is assigned to shooting mode - single, multi, timed etc. The other direction will have macro, standard, telephoto etc. the 3rd direction will (towards right) will take you to the ISO settings and the last will take you to the shutter speed settings.

you manipulate the ISO and shutter speed and see your screen will brighten up and the subject will be clear. Refer to the picture attached.

How do i change my iso setting


Your camera is capable of ISO adjustments from 100 to 1600. Photos taken at ISO 100 require the longest exposures and will have the best quality color and least amount of graininess. This setting should be used as often as possible and is ideal for well lit subjects. Conversely, ISO 1600 is for low light situations. Photos taken with the camera set to this value will have muddied colors and much more graininess in them. This is often preferred to having no photo at all.

The down side to this camera - like most point & shoot ("P&S") types, is the fact the the light sensor that actually captures the image from the lens, is quite small. Small sensors have difficulty rendering acceptable photos when taken at high ISO settings. It is not unusual for P&S cameras to perform unacceptably at ISO 400 and up. Reviews I have seen on your camera back this up. Basically, ISO 100 and 200 are the only values that provide acceptable photos. You should experiment with the entire range of ISO under different lighting conditions to see which situations and ISOs are acceptable to you.

Your camera makes use of icons to access menus and they do not show up well on FixYa, so I will need direct you to an online manual that you can view or download. It can be found here.

Chapter 3 (begins on Page 16) talks about camera menu settings. Your should review this chapter, and pay particular attention to "ISO" on page 20. You will learn how to select ISO 100, 200, 400, 800 & 1600 on the camera.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hi Sandy, Page 43 of the D80 manual explains about Auto ISO. It works in the Vari-Program modes. In one of those modes turn on your menu go to Shooting Menu, move down to ISO sensitivity, this is where you can set Auto ISO to on or to a select ISO.

ISO AUTO ERROR


Need more information regarding your question.

If your error is about your images being brighter/darker whenever you shoot at different locations, then this is a normal feature when using Auto setting for your ISO. The exposure will always slightly change whenever the ISO changes.

If your problem is about too much noise, then this is a normal problem when you use very high ISO on the D80. You can remedy this by setting the max ISO to 400 but you will not be able to take non-flash pics in darker environments.

If your problem is the ISO levels do not go up a certain setting, change your MAX ISO setting to a higher number like 1600. At this setting, the pictures will be grainy and have a lot of noise so I recommend you convert the output to black and white.

Blue corners when shooting in BULB


With the same exposure settings, you should get the same result. When using Bulb in Manual mode, you also need to be sure you have set the lens aperture to the largest opening (lowest number). And don't forget to set ISO to 1600. Since the D80 has shutter speeds as long as 30" (minutes) I recommend you use them instead of Bulb, unless you need longer.

The blue areas are heat noise from long exposure -- other electronic components near the sensor are generating heat from the constant current flow. Be sure you check your Shooting Menu settings to set Long Exposure NR to ON and also High ISO NR to HIGH.

I can not set the ISO to 100 on my 40D


Check if your Highlight Tone Priority is turned ON. Once ON, the ISO is limited to between 200 and 1600 until you disable Highlight Tone Priority. Also, all your zeros will be replaced by the letter 'o' to remind you that it is ON (Eg 2oo instead of 200)

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.

Nikon D80 Exposure Count


My camera is now fixed. It was a tiny speck of dirt on the sensors between the mounting of the lense & the camera. The uy that fixed it said it is a problem with the camera because they are so sensitive.
