Hello again my dear Nikon owners & fans!

Today trial, for the first time the "Hide Out"...L1.0 (100 ISO), which can comprehend "WHY'... Nikon; don't commence from this "Ultimate Quality' ISO setting?:?

Here my example!

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Hi Alex,
In the case of the D300, iso 100 isn't the ultimate quality setting. Digital sensors unlike film have an optimal performance standard setting (kind of like monitors have a native resolution that provides the best results, to use an awkward analogy). On the D300 that is iso 200, using iso 100 with the D300's sensor is in fact causing a loss in image quality and reducing the camera's dynamic range (still handy to have the option however in some situations). So it isn't the case that using iso 200 on the D300 is a step down from using iso 100, the sensor in the D300 is designed to work optimally at iso 200.

Dear Goomer,

Thanks so much, yes I knew this very well, but want only to try. Yes i add also something that maybe nobody do it before Sharpness set at "0". I'm 100% positively sure that no more i will go down to 200 ISO!.

Want to add another photo from today session!

Peace,
