At the recent San Diego Supershoots event, there were some folks (all of them Canon types) that were bagging on the Nikon D70 and D100 DSLRs because they did not support an ISO setting of 100.

I currently have a D70 and am quite happy with it. But I am curious just the same, how exactly would I benefit *if* they did support the 100 ISO setting or more to the point, what am I missing out on?

I also use a D70. Sometimes I have too much light. It would be nice to be able to reduce the ASA setting, allowing me to keep the lens wide open. Also, if you are using film and digital it is convenient to have both set at the same ASA.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Some people in the world never outgrew the "king of the hill" game and constantly try to "one-up" everybody around them. I find these alpha-male types have such tunnel vision that they quickly become tiresome.

For example, my father in law is a die hard chevy man, and he never misses a chance to take a pot-shot at me because I drive a ford. Personally, I don't give a crap what I drive, the ford was the best deal at the time so that's what I bought.

Just ask them if they need some dip to go with the chip on their shoulder or if they felt like they needed low ISO settings to match their short pecker. People really and truly don't have enough to worry about.

LB, I shoot Canon, but you should shoot whatever you like.

I'll pass that on to my father in law. He'll be glad to hear it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Glad to see you're back on that other site, BTW.

Well, I was on as an MUA and a retired model but what with all that drama... I decided to stay as only an MUA (which is all I was doing anyway)... You know, "Alleged MUA." (People love the underdog)

I actually recieved a lot of inquiries wanting to meet the "Celtic Chink" thanks to the slanderous profile that manager put up. I am now booked out for a few weeks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks Olli. Can't that be accomplished with shutter speed?

I was there with my D70 and everyone was respectful of one's gear. One stop does not make any difference at all. Robert's studio Hensels are adjustable, as are most professional power packs. BTW, Saturday was overcast and Sunday afternoon we were shooting outside with low light and I was happy to shoot 200 ISO!

Outside yes, studio no. Properly stated, you "stop down" to allow less light into the lens. -Photo 101 in high school-
