Help Your Camera See in the Dark

Most people think the only way they can take a picture in the dark is by using the camera's built-in flash. But turning off the flash and increasing the ISO setting makes the camera more sensitive to dim light. Then you can make sharp, hand-held photos indoors without needing the flash. In the image below I raised the ISO to 2000 in order to get a sharp frame of this display indoors without using the flash or a tripod.
