View Full Version : Which of my 2 lenses would work best...

02-21-2007, 09:08 PM
for an indoor reception. A friend of my husbands asked if I would take some pictures at his cousins wedding reception and I need to know which one would work best (without having to go buy a new lense because I just can't afford that right now :o )

1. 18-70mm F3.5-5.6


2. 70-300mm F4-5.6

Also what would the best ISO and should the shutter speed be high or low?

Any help and suggestions would help greatly. Thanks.

Crank the ISO right up to max and use the wide angle, you will be needing every bit of light you can get

I second that. Use the 18-70 lens. The larger aperture will give you more to work with in low light. Plus, unless there's some wildlife that you want to capture from across the room, I don't think a longer zoom will be necessary.

Well....as much as it hurts me to say.....this is one occasion where even Gaza wouldn't try to suggest "big is better" :o
