with my settings the other day. I took my kids out into the snow to play with them..but mostly to play with my camera. it was morning..so the sun was a little high and I figured my ISO was supportive exposure wise at 200. Normally my pictures are AT least 800 because my house lighting sucks..and I am still learning.
So I grabbed my first shot for fun with an ISO of 400 and an shutter speed of 1/800( though previous to rechecking this I could have sworn it was 1/3200 lol)..The picture its self is so amazingly clear! I have never ever produced anything that crisp. I also upped my Fstop to 7 from the regular default of 4. Then because I have this stupid idea in my head that a lower ISO will give me a better picture I lower it to 100 or 200 depending on where I was..and brought my shutter down to 1/120 to 1/400..and it just isnt the same.
I wish I could have seen the difference on the display. then maybe I wouldn't have destroyed it. the lighting was harsh so they were just practice..but they COULD have been sharp practice.
I have to remind my self that there are several ways to achieve perfect exposure..and having a high shutter speed makes a clearer picture. I need to write that down somewhere..
and the super clear picture was just a test one .. not even a snapshot. DSC_1369jm by mama2babiesAnS, on Flickr
