Unfortunately the weather wrecked our last planned outing at the last minute, however the club is planning to hold at least one outing before the Christmas break probably to the Killarney Area. At this outing we will pair experienced and new members together to that the beginners will learn from the more experience people.
This week I will talk a little about the ISO system, before the advent of digital cameras, film could be purchased in a number of sensitivities such as ISO 100, 200 and 400 etc. The higher the figure the more sensitive the film however there is a trade-off in that the more sensitive film produces a grainer image. The digital camera sensor can be adjusted to make it more or less sensitive to light and they have kept the same ISO system for rating the sensitivity and again higher sensitivity will give you noisier images with less definition of fine feature in the picture. Therefore to take the best quality shots use as low an ISO rating as possible.

Remember that we always welcome new members and guests to the club which has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, no need to have a fancy camera, come along and learn how to take better pictures.
