ISO 800 (or “ultra”) is considered “optimal” for video, and is also considered “professional” (and generally recommended).
But what if you don’t have an ISO 400 camera?
Let’s take a look.
What ISO 800 should be used for?
In this article, I’ll discuss how ISO 800 can help you shoot at different resolutions, and what the differences between ISO 400 and ISO 800 are.
If you want to know more about ISO, you can read the official ISO 800 ISO FAQ and our in-depth article on ISO.ISO 400 is the default value for video and photo editing, and it’s also the standard used by most commercial photography studios, like Canon, Nikon, and many other camera makers.ISO 800 is the new ISO for video editing, as it’s a bit higher (1,600) and is more “optical” (like ISO 400).ISO 800 should only be used when you want high-resolution, high-contrast photos, and you’re shooting in low light.ISO 1600 and above, on the other hand, are generally considered “good enough” for a good quality photo.
For this reason, they’re often referred to as “optimum” settings, but that’s a relative term.
For the most part, “optic” is a more accurate descriptor.
For more information on the different types of ISO settings, read our ISO 800 FAQ.ISO settings for video are also important.
You can read about them in our article on the pros and cons of different settings for videography.ISO 200 (or 100) is the maximum value for high-quality photo editing.
It’s also generally recommended for low-light shots, but you can also shoot in bright sunlight (such as indoors) with ISO 200.ISO 2000 (or 800) is a very high-end value for photo editing and video, used by professional film and TV companies.
ISO 2000 is usually recommended for high resolution photos (especially high-res and high-density) and for high contrast photos (like for high ISO exposure).ISO 400 and higher are also used for video.
ISO 400 is generally considered the best value for medium-quality video editing and is sometimes used for the same reason ISO 800 was previously recommended for video: to help capture the best possible shot.ISO 100 (or 400) is generally recommended as a low-ISO exposure setting for video (but it can be useful for a wide variety of photos).ISO 200 is generally preferred for high quality video editing.ISO 1000 is generally not recommended for a video edit (especially for the highest resolution photos).
The ISO value for a camera depends on the manufacturer.
In many cases, the ISO value is the same for all cameras, but in others, a different ISO is used depending on the model of camera.
Most cameras use a range of ISO values, but some cameras have a fixed ISO setting for each camera, so they all use the same ISO setting.
If you don-t have a camera, but want to shoot at a certain ISO, the following ISO settings can help.
The ISO settings are shown in the order they’re recommended by the camera manufacturer, and the ISO values are indicated in the table.
In some cases, you’ll find that there’s a difference between a camera’s “optics” setting and its “ISO”.
Some cameras, like the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, have a “optix” ISO setting that’s the same as its “resolution” setting.
This means that the ISO you shoot with is based on the “optico” value of the camera.
For example, the Canon 5D III has a resolution of ISO 100, while the 5D II has an ISO of ISO 200, and both have a range from ISO 100 to ISO 400.
In other words, the “resolutions” are based on a difference in the camera’s ISO settings.
In this example, if you have an EOS 5D Mark III with an ISO 100 ISO, then you’ll use the “ISO 200” ISO value.
The “ISO” of a camera is determined by the sensor.
Most sensors are rated at a given ISO (and ISO 100 for the 5Ds III), so the ISO for the camera is based off the sensor’s ISO rating.

When you’re making video edits, you’re often using a high ISO setting, because you want a high-detail image (like the one shown above).
You’re also likely using a higher resolution for high dynamic range (HDR) photography, as well as for more fine detail.
This is why ISO is so important for editing videos.
High-ISO shots are generally recommended, but sometimes you’ll want to edit low-res shots, like for a sunset or sunrise.
You’ll often want to use a higher ISO for those shots, so you can have a better contrast and a clearer shot
