Thank you for your Basic Tips. While they may be basic to some, they are still useful to refresh one's knowledge. A little more explanation on ISO in the digital world would be helpful - How does it relate to ISO in regular film, etc.

ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization, which is an organization that has established a common reference across the globe with regard to film speed (among many other things). In other words, to assure everyone everwhere that ISO 100 is the same across the board. As for ISO film speed vs. ISO digital, the common reference still applies to digital standards of sensitivity to light globally. If you have a Nikon, Canon, Fuji or any other camera, ISO is the same among all of these cameras and how a camera reacts to light gathering information -i.e the same as a camera with film speed of the same ISO number. An in-depth explanation of film speed can be viewed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_5800. I hope this helps!

Thanks for the tips, I look forward to more like this (like white balance). One tip might be to put your Nikon also on a tripod and see if you can still show us the settings without all the shaking.
