Great examples Ken. Your D800 is amazing in low light. However you have added another item to the equation by adding ev compensation(SOOC + 2EV PP) after the shot. We all know that ISO 100 is an ultimate goal and that it will win over ISO 6400 But if you want to shoot indoor available light something has to give. Sure you can fix it in post but that has it's drawbacks as well as adding noise when you pull the shadows or raise the exposure.
On our trip to Tampa, 95% of my photos that I took, my camera selected an ISO of 100 the highest was ISO 1100. I can live with that.

Nice doors Ken ....

Curtis your moon is great for hand held. And I'm guessing quite high ISO too ....

Ram .... as always your pix are excellent .... love the fact that you got to see the eclipse ....

Leighton .... I'm with you being Old School re ISO settings ... though I tend to stick to ISO200 as a base level. Mainly due to the fact that, that is the lowest level on older DSLR's from my experience with the D70 on upwards ... only now do I get to chose the ISO 100 setting ... but tend to stick with what I know .... plus I like to be in control of what is happening with the camera, I don't like some foreign gentle-person taking over what I want .... hence no auto-ISO on my units.

Appreciate the conversation about camera settings with Ken's observation about working in post. A number of us have made the comment that there is as much pleasure to be found in the post processing workflow as there is in shooting. Honestly, Lightoom's latest version is so powerful and the images produced by recent cameras so good, we can accomplish a great deal in post to enhance an image. I often speak about the religious experience of watching the image come into focus in the viewfinder as I turn the focusing ring. I feel only slightly less excitement as I open the image on my 27" iMac to begin working. Except when I'm converting an image with Silver Efex Pro 2, which I do inside Photoshop after I've done preliminary work in Lightroom, I'm always working toward what my memory tells me I saw in the field. We have so many tools within Lightroom to get where we want to go. The digital darkroom is truly amazing. Fortunately, I'm not a prolific shooter which means I have time to shoot RAW and play in post. Great fun!

Steve sometimes I really miss shutter priority and I am considering adding cpu chips to my lenses. I think I can safely say that we shoot aperture priority here because of the nature of our lenses. So if you are setting the ISO and the aperture, guess what......some foreign gentle-person is taking over your shutter speed

Surely you REMEMBER snow Ray... You saw it a few times in Canada. I know it is in very short supply in Florida, though they probably have faux snow at Disney... Just remember a visit to Leighton in the winter will help with your memory...

Laura I love those frosted tulips ...

Nice shots of the old war bird Ken .... just who was that girl ?? I bet Reagan knows her name ....

Stunning work on the moon Rafael... specially with 2 convertors ....

Dean .... you have some crazy people in HK .... does Durex translate the same in HK as in the UK ? (Naughty girls )

Ray .... I understand your use of auto-ISO .... but it's just not for me .... YET .....

Peter .... Your eclipse shots are gorgeous .... lucky you .... and your fellow countrymen ....

Yup, snow on Tax Day . Fortunately this batch won't hang around long. I have a feeling Mother Nature wanted me to get one shot of the surfin' cat with snow on it, so conspired to give me one last chance . Maybe now that I've gotten the shot... snow will not reappear till October.

Ray ..... I have reverted to real nerd mode with manual lenses .... back to total manual control ... except for the electronics of course.

So manual aperture, manual shutter speed, and manual ISO .... how Old School is that ....

It is so good to go back and re-live those days of Nikon F2 Photomic heads and total manual usage ....

I can't think of a better way to treat these wonderful lenses .....

Having said that ... if I want point & shoot .... then I can just switch to Ken Rockwells Professional mode

Tee hee hee

That's reasonable ISO. The point I learned was that if it is on AUTO, the ISO needs to be limited since I never use it, when I do its a learning curve for me. I always default to a bit underexposed on about everything I shoot so I normally pop the EV to where it needs to be in PP. This seems to get me greater details.

Now the Df is the ISO rig that I bet over time will change everyone's thinking about stepping over the 1600 ISO line!

Nuno You also need to also find the "ISO sensitivity setting" on your menu so you can set that also.
In the D610 manual if you look at pages 105-107 it will show you how to set auto ISO. When I select the lens that I am using in the non-cpu menu I also select the minimum shutter speed that I will require for that lens in the "ISO sensitivity setting". I also set the Min ISO at 100 and max at 3200 or whatever you are comfortable with. These are the first two items I placed in "My Menu" so

Yes, and I have done that.

Auto ISO sensitivity contro - ON
Maximum sensitivity - 6400
Minimum shutter speed - AUTO

With this, the D610 is still shooting at 1/30 or 1/60 and ISO 100 with the 105/2.5 Ai that I got today in the mail. What else do I need to turn on/off?

I set my own minimum shutter speed of about 1/160 (or higher if the lens is longer). that way the only time the camera will go under that speed is when it hits max ISO.

Scott,
I'm glad you set me straight with you comment to Laura .... I thought what she posted were pictures of the slurpy things in paper cones that we use to give the kids on a hot day if they were good.

You mean the stuff comes free to your doorstep with out a truck with bells on it!
