    Hi Chris. Please SOS. Everytime I try to use in camera metering, whether in AV or TV or M, especially in doors, the in-camera meter tells me the image will be under exposed but since I'm using Flash, the picture always comes out sharp. But it I force the meter back to dead Zero in the centre, the shutter speed gets low its scary. Please advice

    Lisa one thing they didn't mention in the video is that recent cameras are doing a fantastic job at reducing the levels of noise in the pictures. Medium entry level cameras are competing with full frame ones in this respect. More often than not I find myself increasing my ISO to 1600-3200 in very dark places. say for example, a church. I don't need to reduce noise later during post production because my EOS sensor did a wonderful job.

    can we take a photograph without any flash in almost completely dark room with higher ISO speed and faster shutter speed? What if we use built in flash? Do we need to have same ISO and shutter speed setting?

    Thanks for your question – with a higher ISO, you can afford a faster shutter speed. The common misconception is that higher ISOs will cause more noise – this is generally true but don't be afraid to bump up the ISO on your camera and experiment with different levels of ISO. Let us know how you go. Cheers, the Canon team.

    Hi there, great tutorials btw! Question to ISO and shutter speed. I don't understand what the combination of ISO and shutter speed is. Let's say, I'm using ISO 1600, how high/low should be the shutter speed? I understand it should be a fast shutter speed, is it right? Also, I thought the higher the ISO the more noise you get in the picture. Therefore, how do you manage to get those beautiful pictures with such a high ISO? btw, if important, I have a simple EOS 550D 🙂 thx for your help!

    @yungrik00 Experiment with the aperture and the ISO settings. Set your camera to BULB and vary your exposure times as well. Thanks, the Canon team.

    @waseem5420288 Yeah I realized that when I was using my uncles HTC Android camera and I put the ISO at 1200 and it was soooo grainy lol but when I put it at I think 100 or 200….I can't remember which one it was but it was really dark and so the picture was normal.

    @gforceram Hello there, thanks for your question. It really depends on the circumstance and if additional light is present. Cheers, The Canon Team.
