Making the picture brighter and clearer indoors and low light
Nov 8, 2012

After using the nex 5r I notice there are a number of ways excluding flash to change the brightness of the picture in darker situations. So out of the list below which is the best and most effective method. And is there any other ways not mentioned.

1) Changing the ISO

2)Changing the aperture and shutter speed in M mode

3) Changing the exposure comp in PAS modes

4)Changing shutter speed in S mode.

5) The difference nighttime modes in SCN including hand held twilight, antimotion blur, night portrait, and night scene (these seem to cater towards making a clearer shot rather than increasing brightness)

Side note, I was playing around with the camera and placed it on a table, set the exposure comp to max and it took a clear picture of a pitch black room, the shutter did close after 15 seconds but it was cool.
