"D5100 ISO speed problem" Sun 03-Feb-13 08:27 PM by sam49
Hi guys can I please ask for a little help. After using a Canon A1 SLR, for a number of years with 135 negative films, but that was a long time ago. Then recently I’ve only used a point and shoot digital camera for the last few years. Now I have bought a Nikon D5100 and I am having a little trouble with it so I would like to ask a question. If I try and shoot indoors under tungsten lighting in auto mode I get I get an orange tinge on the photos. I understand this is the white balance setting and it is not adjustable in the Auto setting so I have tried the (Program) and (Aperture) mode setting then I can set the white balance to tungsten, but then the ISO is auto set to 100, and then the shutter speed is too slow. So my question is how high I can set the ISO before I the photos with noise as I think this is the only way I can get a faster shutter speed. I have tried upping the ISO to 1200 but then I have to use the widest aperture in can get on my 18 to 105 mm f3.5 to 5.6 lens and even then I can only use a slow speed. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
