Re: misconception
In reply to Photozopia, Mar 29, 2013

I wanted to also point out that people have big misconception what iso is in digital cameras. Stacey believe when you turn the Iso knob something Manila happens, like the sensor which is at base iso 200 magically replaces for a more sensitive sensor at base iso 800.  None at all. It is the same sensor with the very same sensitivity.  You just have to recreate the false sensitivity by gain which  for any purposes today is software driven - the chip has build in digital converters by  the chip maker and it is non divisible, you as a camera maker can touch data after the ad, not before. There is no iso 800 there is only a simulation of iso 800 And you work on digital data the chip gives you.
