Okay, then I wasn't off when it comes to ISO and what it is. My camera is very different from what I used to shoot with 10 years ago. My old camera was a Minolta...completely manual. The difference in my camera now and that one was that I changed the apertures on the lens and I believe the shutter speed options were a dial on the top of the camera. When shooting manual shots, on my Nikon (current camera) ecverything is read on a window on the top of my camera. There is the shutter speed to the left and the apertures to the right of that. On the bottom left of the screen there are the flash options and on the bottom right is the number of frames left. Would it have a place for me to override the ISO if it was an option on the window with the other options? I have read through my manual many times and seem to learn something new each time but I don't recall anything about manually overriding the ISO. Does that mean my ISO will always be whatever film speed I shoot?

With film speed....is 800 a good speed for shooting at night and if so, if I am shooting at the darkest time of night towards say....a ferris wheel, would I need a flash? The reason I ask is that when I shot fireworks this past year, I shot 800sp film with no flash and they were very sharp and clear. Is that typicall with most night time shooting when you are trying to get the lights?

I think I will go and buy a roll of 200, 400 and 800 speed and use them and see what I come up with. I will go find some reading on it first and then see what I come up with.

What Nikon do you have? The N55, N65 and N75 do not have manual ISO capability. The N80 is their least expensive AF SLR that allows you to manually set the ISO.

I have the N55. If you know some stuff about those, can you recommend the best telephoto lens for me? I have a G-type 50-80mm right now.

Take a look at the photos Vibrio took with his new Sigma lens in the Fun Forum. They have that in a Nikon mount and it will be much cheaper than a Nikon equivalent lens. Of course, if money is no object -- go with a Nikon lens.

make sure that if you are uprating your film to make your lab aware of the need to push the film.

What is uprating my film and do I need to tell them anything special when I take it to be developed or loaded onto a cd? When I develop all of this film that I am "practicing" with, I just get the picture cd as it is cheaper and I can take that back and get prints of the one's I want.

You should go to your ISO setting on the samera and choose the faster speed, 800 or 1600, you should be able to manually put this in. When you go to the lab tell them that you have uprated the film to whichever speed yu chose. Most professional labs will know what to do. But as I said before, be prepared for a little more noise (grain). But sometimes grain adds the mood. I personally prefer a grainy picture rather than no pic at all.

Is setting your ISO the same thing as setting your shutter speed? If I am shooting with 400, should I be setting my shutter speed to about 800? Is that what you mean by "pushing".

no, pushing and pulling is changing the ISO...nothing to do with the shutter speed. some cameras have a manual selection to be able to manually select the ISO.

Your camera may use DX codes and automatically select the ISO, Kris. If you can't see a knob to turn and change your ISO, it probably is automatically controlled and you don't have the ability to change it.
