    I don't know when I'd need this?

    Super closed F-stop to get starburst effects on the lights at a concert?

    bout all I got besides possibly looking into the darkness of Dick Cheney's soul...

    ISO is the acronym for Intense Sunlight Orientation and it measures just how little sunlight, or light, the camera needs to take a photo. The higher the ISO the less light needed. So with an ISO of 409,600 means that it can be 409,600 times darker than high noon in Greenwich during the Vernal equinox and still take a photo of a bunny.

    Is 409,600 sensitive enough to capture Spinal Tap's album cover?

    (And the answer is none. None more black.)

    ISO 409,600 would be useful in the dark of Cthulhu's digestive tract?
