Not true, one starts raising ISO when they are already aperture and shutter limited.

Bob says - "people using ISO first technique".

Bob and his ideas on ISO first versus "Auto ISO rules" aside, people start raising their ISO as the last resort, if they have exhausted their other options and especially those who are aware of the compromises with every aspect: aperture, shutter speed AND ISO setting.

Take a look at the sample above. Neither has a good photographic value, and only exists to demonstrate that higher ISO compromises dynamic range. But, if you were to take the same shot, there is a good chance you could explore additional options including lowering the shutter speed perhaps even down to 1/4s and use ISO 800.

The obvious question would be... if you prefer Auto ISO instead, what would be the camera's choice? ISO 100?

The ISO control really doesn't do much except a fine optimisation. It's the exposure that matters.

What fine optimization?
