Re: rsn48

If you expose to the right, you lose the full benefit of the high ISO. If you're one stop to the right at 3200, you are no better off, regarding shutter speed and aperture, than shooting normally at 1600. The point of high ISO is to be able to use higher shutter speeds and/or smaller apertures.

You may, or may not, get a better result than dropping ISO and shooting in the "middle", but the ISO ratings in digital cameras are less impressive than they seem if it is necessary to add extra light to get them to work properly.
