Re: I wish you would read first.

You seem to be stuck on the term ISO.  ISO really doesn't exist on digital cameras but was carried over as a way for film photographers to have a better understanding of what the sensor is really doing, and that is adding gain.

When you think about what the sensor is really doing and ignore the poor ISO term,  Nord's and Troj's explanation makes perfect sense.  But you are trying to apply a film mentality to a digital world.  The words may have been transposed from tech to the other, but the way it actually works is different.  This is where you seem to be failing to understand.
