    So if I want to take a pic of stars at night and don't want to wait hours taking it, where do I start?

    Just note the ISO definition is a joke, it simply means International Standards Organisation.

    Man I have been looking for a good tutorial for iso like this for aaages. Too many people are obsessed with how the numbers are weird. This actually explained how it compensates the other aspects.

    sorry i am a novice. can you teach me about your calculation, how can iso 100 higher up 3 stops become iso 800 and shutter speed 1/160 become 1/1250? is there a way to consider best shutter speed to shot?

    I love the beginning of this video. Hilarious and makes me want to watch more!

    Unless you're a professional or have a solid grip on photography and how to use ISO, it's pointless. I shoot in Aperture priority and Auto ISO. The only thing I change the F stops and even that's a guess. Too many numbers.
