The upper limit I use to avoid excessive noise. I know if I'm warned about hitting it that the shots needs light added ( to gain my shutter speed ) rather than simply trading for noise beyond the point I'm comfortable with for a given shot.

Seems like several people prefer to gamble on the blur than take the sure-thing of more noise, which I guess I can see. If you gamble and win, you have a better image than if you let the ISO go too high.

Do you have an idea of your keeper rate at, say, one stop below your MSS?

One thing the happens for me which is weird I suppose, is I'm very aware when dropping below MSS in Auto ISO. That causes me to actually pause and take more time concentrating on holding technique and subject characteristics (watch for the person to pause) For a brief time I think my keeper rate, just below MSS, goes up slightly. I should be taking the same care all the time...but I don't

I think this would be impossible, but it would be interesting to get all the Auto-ISO users together and see what MSS values we select under the same shooting conditions. You know...see what people set at the zoo or museum. Would there be more similarities than differences? I wonder...


That would be furn
