How it is measured : Low ISO numbers are less sensitive to light than higher ISO numbers. 400 is twice as sensitive as 200, etc.   How to use it :  Use a low ISO for bright light conditions, high ISO for dark conditions.  Higher ISO allows faster shutter speeds or smaller aperture, but higher ISO introduces more noise. Shutter Speed What it controls :  Amount of time the shutter remains open. How it is measured :  In fractions of a second (or seconds).

How it is measured :  Expressed in focal ratio to the lent
