ISO – This measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. The lower the number the less sensitive your camera is to light and the finer the grain. The higher ISO settings are generally used in darker situations to get faster shutter speeds (for example an indoor sports event when you want to freeze the action in lower light) The one on the left is taken at 100 ISO’s and the one of the right at 3200 ISO’s.
