    Default Camera settings for flashless event photography

    Hi ppl,

    Hope some experts or veterans can advise.


    What settings fo you use for an outdoor event (night, but got stage lights), and cannot use flash?

    If, I have a Nikon D70, 70-200mm and tripod.

    1) ISO settings

    2) Aperture suggestions

    3) Any other advice


    Any help is appreciated.

    Anyone uses a teleconvertor for this purpose? Eg. Nikon TC-17E II?

    And a calm n steady hands

    I shoot low light for a dance competition a while ago and used ISO 6400 from my D1H .. A VERY bad mistake.

    Shoot at ISO 1600 the most ... and post process it if you dislike the grain.

    re. 1/ focal length .. for me, just set to Aperture mode and shoot when there is a stage light illuminating your object ,as your VR lens can help you greatly.

    Nikon 4 & lots of hollow chunky glass
