Sunny 16 Rule
1

In preparation for my New Mexico trip I have been poking around the Inet for shooting landscapes in bright, sunny light. I ran across the Sunny 16 Rule. For example. On a sunny day at f16 you would set the shutter speed at 100 and the ISO at 100, or 200/200, etc. Is anyone familiar with this? Have you used this "rule"? There are also suggested shutter speed/ISO setting for the other f-stops.  Any other suggestions are appreciated.

I know that I will be shooting landscapes in sunny conditions at times.

Thanks much.
