ISO/*ist DL

I have not given my ist DL a full workout and wonder what happens if I change the ISO setting during a shoot? I hope it only impacts the "upcoming" photos. Is that reasonable (better yet, is it fact)?

The setting for ISO is for the next picture to be taken. In other words, you can change the setting between exposures as often as the conditions dictate.

I find that the best thing to do is to to check the "Info" button when I first pick up the camera -- to see what all the settings are. If you want to change the ISO it is pretty quick to accomplish.

I appreciate the reply. That was my "guess" (gawd forbid I would actually study the manual) but I didn't want to booger up a memory card full of shots. Again, THANKS!

There are no camera settings that would ever affect shots you've already taken.

I think we all have boogered up shots but thats part of learning. I would have ratherd tryied and boogered than not tryied and missed the shot!
