Default ISO settings...

I confess to being a photographic dunce when it comes to f-stops, shutter speeds, and - worst of all - ISO settings!

Can anyone, in plain and simple terms without using technojargon, explain a little about ISO settings? For example, what practical difference there is between 100 and 400, when to use different settings - stuff like that.

Any help on this would be much appreciated!

ISO setting is simple terms is just an amplifier to boost the brightness of your image. The side effect of this being that more noise is created the higher the ISO, however like me, as you are using a 350D you probably won't notice the noise until you hit 800.

Personally I adjust my ISO before I alter my shutter speed, a little bit of noise looks better than a blurred subject.

The site below will probably give a better explanation:
