    The ISO setting is used to take photos in low lighting.
    This is often done in conjunction with a slower shutter speed, as the two settings complement each other and allow the user to take the best photo. For example, in order to take a photo of a moving subject, it is necessary to increase the shutter speed so that the subject is not blurred. However, as the shutter is not open as long, this will require more light. One way to do this, if there is not enough natural light, is to adjust the camera's sensitivity, which is the ISO. This may increase noise in the photo, which can be in the form of distortion, static or blur, and generally reduces the clarity of a photo. To reduce noise, it is important to use a tripod to be able to keep the camera very still.

    For example, if the ISO is set at the highest point in the range, and the shutter speed is at its lowest setting (open for the longest amount of time), there will be too much light for the situation in this video.
    The resulting photo will be all glare. Adjust the shutter speed and ISO settings based on the amount of light in each scenario to be able to take the best picture.

    Therefore, the less light there is when taking a photo, the higher the ISO setting, or sensitivity, should be.
    When used in conjunction with the shutter speed, the ISO allows the shutter to open more to allow more light in when using a faster shutter speed, which is helpful when taking action shots. The best way to learn how these settings work is to practice using the camera in different situations, with different ISO and shutter speed settings.
