Fair enough. Maybe make a note of this in the README?
Does this explain why using -ISO
won't set any value beyond 100-800, but using -ex sports
can result in the exif data showing ISO as high as 1600?
Well, you are the only person to comment on it so far... so not sure it's that in need of documentation!
Actually the ISO thing is different. And tbh I'm not sure what's going on there. Anything over 800 is rejected, but internally, the algorithms used in working out gains, shutter times etc obviously don't have the same limitation, but I don;t know why. Although 1600 ISO will be pushing the gain up so high the noise will be pretty bad.
If I have time, I see if I can see why we limit to 800 for external setting (although I think the Nokia 808 allowed 1600, but that is a much better sensor)
