TCav, Jim are you out there? I'm trying to figure out under what circumstances do you use these ISO settings? I've read the manual & another book on the A100, but they really don't explain it. Can you help? Thanks to everyone.

This should help:

Basically, it's varying the tone curve so that the lo setting favors properly exposing the shadows, and the hi setting favors properly exposing the highlights (with one at the expense of the other).

Thanks Jim, I read that link &it explains it pretty good. Do you lurk in the shadows just waiting for a dumb question from me? You and TCav always come through, I appreciate that.

No problem. The only dumb question is the one you do not ask. ;-)

Next time someone asks the same question, you can help by pointing them in the right direction. That's what's nice about the forum community here. Everyone tries to help out each other, and we all benefit from each other's knowledge.
