I actually ran an action on it, it was a B&W action. And I turned off the B&W so it just left matte.

thank you for explaining that. for some reason, when I read about it all, it mushes together. but im taking a seminar next weekend (WOOOT!) on using manual on my camera and I could not be more stoked!

The higher the ISO, the grainier the photos. Think of your entire camera as an eye. The shutter speed is like a door opening and closing to give you more light in and a better view of what is behind the door to capture an image. With action/children, a standard 250 shutter speed is a good base. Fstops, as I said above, work best to think subject wise. Low fstops are good for one focal subject. Medium fstops are good for two to three subjects. Finally, higher fstops with four to six people and landscapes. That's a general rule of thumb in manual and straight out of bag settings. ISO should be low 100 to begin with and Nikon usually bottoms out at 400 ISO and goes grainy. Also, use your viewfinder to move focal points if needed to help focus the main subject.

My Nikon doesn't bottom out at 400 ISO. lol. Neither one did. I had the D5100 & now I have the D7000. I can get away with 1000 ISO on both with pretty minimal noise. Probably even higher.

It does not stop at 400 ISO, no. However, if you go to enlarge a photo, it does show grain at higher ISO. Some can handle better than others. I learned this from taking a class with a gal who has shot for over 20 years.

Oh yeah, of course enlargements will show more noise. But I wouldn't say they bottom out at 400 ISO for all Nikons. That's a really low ISO for higher end bodies.

It's just a starting point, straight out of bag. You can always play with settings to what your camera can do. Starting at a low ISO and working up is better than a grain or blow out. Of course WB too, is another item to pay attention too. Just passing along some things I learned from my manual class. ;)

I agree, that's what I do. I always start at the lowest ISO possible, then adjust it accordingly.

Well, you always have amazing work so I trust your setting tips as well. :)
