Tips
• The other day, i was shooting in the high school auditorium and it was darn dark. I bumped up the ISO and was getting OK photos, but when checking them in the LCD, i wasn’t seeing things as crisply as i wanted. Then the lightbulb went off – heck i remember putting something in the wiki about the High ISO settings and so i went into the menus and turned off the “High ISO speed noise reduction” – which is in the custom functions (C.Fn II: Image section). What a difference that made!
