I mainly shoot in dark, dim conditions.. 800-1600 ISO and sometimes 3200 ISO with my 50D and 20D..

400 ISO is my "standard" ISO setting when shooting in brighter conditons..

I am usually at 400 as that is a about as high as I will go without really visible grain, esp. after sharpening if needed. I will go to 800 if I need the shot, and 1600 is emergencies only. Really need to upgrade. :cry:

100-1600 on my Rebel XS, because it goes from 100-1600.

I don't like using 1600, and am not very fond of 800, but a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do.

I really don't like shooting indoors anyway.

I mostly shoot between 100-200.


Thank you. bw!

My "standard ISO" is 200 which takes care of 99% of my shooting then I'll deviate from there as needed.

Mate, I do get out, but it's in dark places;)
I love shooting in low light at high ISO..

Tri-X pushed to around 600.

Is there a particular reason for pushing to 600? It seems odd to just push half a stop, I normally have only bothered pushing Tri-X to 800 or 1600.

I stick with 200 most of the time and change depending on situation.

Native iso's are described clearly on the zacuto shootout videos,

I forget which episode it was that goes over it.

Yep, they also made some tests there.
The majority of the time i dont bother with raw, yes i know it gives me more working room in case i under or overexpose, i can adjust wb and everything much better in post, but unless im shooting a wedding, i have to honestly say that Jpeg's are more than sufficient quality wise when you set it up right.

I try to do as much in camera as possible, hence my use of the native iso's.

while the diff between iso 160 and 200 is small, at higher iso's the native levels show themselves pretty well, and shooting in these steps provides me with a small IQ boost. Not much, but to enough to make me happy-face.

just my 0.02$

My default is ISO200...going to ISO1600 (first shot) or ISO 3200, (second shot), when necessary (no NR applied).

400 is a good starting point for me.

I start out the door at ISO 100, and move it up as needed. At night ISO 6400 is my default with my 30 1.4 wide open and stop the lens down if the SS lets me.

Much like a few others have stated in previous post, there is no 'correct' answer to the question. However, when I have the luxury to freelance outside of commercial work, I tend to use an ISO of 200...sometimes 100. My style tends to use darkness as suppose to bright light in my images. Its just a personal preference. I currently use a 20D so I usually can't go beyond 800 without noticing noise. I will be adding a 50D to my collection very soon so I'm extremely curious about pushing much higher ISO settings.
