I only use a higher ISO setting if I require a faster shutter speed at very low light.
The higher the ISO setting the move sensitive the sensor is to light

Personally I'd stay away from the top end, With a bridge camera unless its a do or die image, Keep below ISO 400......Smile

I have one DSLR that has a top ISO setting of 25000, Now that might seem impressive, But ISO 25000 images are not wonderfull, Unless your a Papp with something really juicy for the front page of the Sun.

These silly high ISO figures are just another specification to please the punters, Put there because the marketing boys think we are all daft enough to buy the camera based on that.....!
