What is native ISO?
2

Watching a video on sports settings for A7RIII and he said he believes native ISO for this camera is 160 so he sets his at 160

What is native ISO and what benefit is native? I always thought you set it at 100 but I see we have other options 80, 64 & 50 which is also confusing.

I read where some wish the III had ISO 64 like the Nikon 850 which I assume means a true 64 is that what native means? If so I assume some settings are simulated or other?

Please do not put words in my mouth. Nothing can be further from the truth.
