What is Film Speed (ISO)? ( ISO stands for International Standards Organization )


- Film speed is the measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light. In digital cameras the Film is referred to as the camera sensor.
- The higher the ISO number, the more sensitive the film/sensor is to the light and best for low light conditions.
- Lower film speeds such as ISO 200 or lower, provide minimal noise and more detail in the image, but require more light.
- Faster film speeds such as ISO 1600 or higher, are better suited for low light conditions, but they produce more noise on the image.
