Had to register just to say thanks, the aperture, shutter speed and ISO guide was great, cleared everything up for me. Now when I take shots in future I will actually know what the settings are doing when I change them! :p

Would be great to see more photo examples, like the DoF one of the fence and the shutter speed waterfall, they really helped so it would be great to see more examples, but this definitely cleared things up for me :)

Thanks :D

Thank you so much for explaining some of the terms in a way that is easy to understand and images as example.
I still have about 2mths to wait until I get my DSLR but with all the knowledge i have, I hope I can remember it all and come out with some half decent images lol.

As you can see, the picture on the right suffered from a lot of noise and was pretty much ruined by ISO 1600. For this reason it's important to always shoot at the lowest possible ISO. There will always be situations where it is impossible to shoot at ISO 100, but do your best to keep it to 400 or below for the best results.

To recap:

A lower ISO will produce a higher quality image but requires more light to expose a picture.
A higher ISO will produce a lower quality image but requires less light to expose a picture.

I think it would be good to indicate that this is appropriate technique when shooting JPG.

This, however, is not the best technique in the case of RAW. One should teach new folks about ETTR/HAMSTTR if they are going to be shooting RAW, and provide the appropriate link for more reading, as I don't think it's necessary to be recapping ETTR since it has been done very well already.

Thanks for writing this up, it really solidified what I knew and spelled out most of what I didn't.

Excellent! I remember reading this before I purchased my camera. Now that I've got to play with it, I went back and read it again. I understand more of it now that I have something to play with.

part 3 still in the making Ben? :)

Excellent, This made more sense to me than sitting in a classroom for 6 hours last week.
So thanks again.
I am only new at this, I brought a canon 7d and now I need to learn how to use it.:D
