Gooday birders


A friend of mine has a digital SLR camera on which he sets the ISO at 1200
to take bird photos with a 100 - 400 zoom lens. However the images seem a
bit grainy, in old speak, or noisy in digital speak. We have tried to get
closer to the bird subjects but the images seem to lack the sharpness and
richness of colour and detail that I have seen produced by some of the
photographers on birding-aus. So, could you people who produce the superb
digital images of birds please offer some advise on ISO settings. If
possible could you relate the digital ISO settings to the ASA settings of
film. There may be something else he needs to know so any advise would be
appreciated. For myself I do not have a digital SLR camera and probably
won't get one for a while yet.
