    Yes I play with the ISO, the camera is a Nikon D3200 and I don't think its a full frame but I'm no 100% sure. Like I said I'm to a pro by any means!

    1.5x crop factor w/ 1.4x tc should put you at 630mm equivalent.

    I think playing around with ISO's is my biggest challenge. I can manually adjust everything, but that's where i struggle with grain.

    Thanks packmule I googled the 1.5x crop factor and man did I learn a thing or two. I took AP Photography my first year of College as an electoral credit and it really hung with me. I finally decided to get a SLR over all the other cameras I've had. Boy did I jump in, I've had this camera roughly months and have collected or tried several different lenses. We have a camera store here that'll rent you lenses so it's been nice to rent different lenses and play with them.

    It's a Sony Alpha 200. I know that the Nikon's and Canon's are the better products for overall quality, but knowing when to make the adjustments and making the right ones would work with anything.

    I'm a novice and still experimenting with my camera. I think you need to find out what the highest ISO on your camera will still give you a good photo. Of course it depends on the size of photo you want too. You may find that ISO 1200 gives you a great 4X6 but not a 8X10. Using a higher ISO really helps when using a long telephoto lens. Especially when you are trying to photo a big buck laying under a tree in the shade or if you need a faster exposure in daylight. I'm still having fun with my camera trying to figure things out.

    Here are a couple photos I took yesterday at my house. The woodpecker was drinking out of a knot hole way back in the shade of the limbs and leaves. I used ISO 400 at 1/60 and should gone even higher (experimenting). I used a tripod to get the shot. For the wild turkey chick out in the sunlight, I used ISO 800 at 1/2000 because he was moving around pecking the ground and I was hand holding the camera.
