That is easy, you'll find it in the ISO standard:

You didn't need me to tell you that. Sorry, I thought [crames was] asking for advice. I was wondering why you'd ever choose f/16, 1/100, it seems a pretty unlikely combination to me.

Indeed, especially if combined with the oft-quoted ISO1600 and the miniscule pixels of, say, a D800. The probability of getting any electrons in the proverbial bucket at all seems quite remote!

ISO100 rules.
