Default ISO speed

In some of mine picture, which I made with Nikon 5700 I found on exif info ISO speed rating 140. My question is if this is normal, because I think that ISO can be just 100, 200, 400 and 800.

this is a great question as I also have a Nikon 5700.
How do you view the exif data?

Jim

You can use several programs found on the net to view them. But the easiest way is to use the Nikon view, which came with the cam.

You can also use Nikon capture which is about $150.00. I was at a Nikon school a few weeks ago and they really talked up Nikon capture.
I hope my info is correct. I am fairly new at this and I have really appreciated this site. Steve does a great job. I bought the dp9000 battery pack after his review, and I have been extremely please with the extra power. :roll:

Regards,

Murray :roll:

Welcome Murray!

Yes, Steve has - together with Phil Askey and some few others become the big photogurus on the net. Well earned to this date.

The ISO rating concept for digitals is based on the idea of the ISO rating for conventional film - i.e. steps of increasing sensitivity. I suspect that your camera was on some kind of automatic setting that sought to balance "film speed", f stop and shutter speed with the result that it increased the light sensitivity of your camera to a "mid" ISO setting. At one point we would have done something similar at the point of developing the film.

p.s. The file browser in Photoshop Elements 2.0 gives access to the exif data.
