Hm just tried it out (good lighting) and it DOES seem to provide better images! Am quite surprised!

Now to try it out in low-light, which hopefully, won't turn out a black image..

EV setting can be found between the Flash and the Settings icons. Its signified by the 3 slider bars. You can move it either +2 to -2, which in this thread is suggesting is to set it to lowest possible setting.

its TRUE that with ISO 100 images is SUPERB in comparison of AUTO ISO... almost NO NOISE AT ALL AT 100 ISO...

But... ISO 100 is for ALL LIGITING CONDITIONS ? can i use it even in a dark room & at OUTSIDE SUN LIGHT ?

Someone that knows pls answer

*Sigh* Of course ISO 100 is not for all lighting conditions... THe more light there is the lower you can set the ISO value, but in darker surroundings you'll just get a sharp but very dark image. It's all in the balance.

Automode just has a habbit of increasing ISO too fast...

So outside with SUN LIGHT i can use 100 or 50 iso for perfect pictures ?
