The Sunny 16 Rule: “On a sunny day set aperture to f/16 and shutter speed to the [reciprocal of the] ISO film speed [or ISO setting] for a subject in direct sunlight.”
Primarily used for clear, sunny days, the Sunny 16 is a rule of thumb that allows photographers to use the environment’s lighting and the camera’s f/stop settings determine the Shutter Speed and ISO. Under these conditions, the Shutter Speed is set to the same number as the ISO (ex. ISO = 100, Shutter Speed = 1/100 or 1/125). In most cases, using this rule of thumb produces better quality photos than the Auto Setting feature.
