ISO aperture setting shutter

posted on 22nd of november, 2008

For the exposure to be correct, there are three variables that must be balanced:

ISO speed : This is sensitivity to light of the sensor array. It defines the total amount of light that required. It is sometimes referred to as the film speed equivalent.

Aperture setting:This is the size of the opening in the lens through which the light passes.It defines the rate at witch light reaches the sensor array.

Shutter speed: This is the length of time the camera shutter is open. It defines how long light is allowed to reach the sensor array.

The simplest explanation for noise is: Think about what happens when you turn up the volume on your stereo, the sounds goes from nice, hearing all the instruments in the band to loud and with some of the instruments getting drowned out or the music is distorted. The same with the DSLR’s sensor, once you start turning things up, away from normal to loud (low light and high ISO) the image starts to degrade a bit. Until they invent something better than the sensor and amplifier to collect our images we will have to deal with this gain by using our noise reduction setting and/or keeping things normal as possible. Me, like my music I like my images loud but not too noisy.
