Just curious on what common ISO you use most of the time. Along with shutter speed and F stop combination...

I usually have my ISO at 400. Occasionally I will turn it down when conditions permit. Well, I always want to turn it down, but usually conditions do not permit. Speed and hole size I adjust on the fly, as I leave the camera on manual for those settings. 1/100 is the low end of the speed choices that I use hand held. I am not steady enough any slower than that. If I shoot fast I can go slower than that, but I blow a lot of pictures. I adjust hole size to fit the speed in those lower light conditions. With the tripod I go all over the place, from one extreme to the next.

I try to keep the ISO as low as I can...Shutter speed and aperture depends on what I'm shooting.

100, the darker it gets, the higher ISO gets bumped.

80, I have a canon powershot and have noticed noise the higher the ISO. You can definitely tell the difference between a shot at 80 and one at 400 ISO on my camera.

When shooting indoors I will bump it up to 200 or even to 800 sometimes. The results are OK, but you can tell the difference. But I can't shoot indoors at 80 or even 100. To be honest shooting candid shots of people indoors at 200 is difficult for me.

That's kind of a tough one to answer for me.
Generally if it's in the studio or outdoors it's ISO 50-200.
Indoors with help of on-camera strobe might average 800.

I don't know what iso I use the most. It probably varies a lot depending on the season and type of photography I'm doing. When I shot film it maxed at 400 iso.

It completely depends on the lighting situation and what I'm shooting.

ISO 100 almost all the time, up to 800 depending on what light I have left near sunset. SP and Aperture all depend on what im doing, but I really like to experiment with both to see what results I can come up with.
