    shoot hand held with no flash, speed can't go below 1/(focal length of lens use), unless you have hands of steel, using VR lens or using tripod.

    shooting human as subject, unless you ask the person to hold still, else 1/60 is very safe for no motion blur.

    simple solution for you in this situation .... JUST USE FLASH, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/60!!

    me thinks it really depends on where in changi airport you're shooting and wat time of the day? If remember correctly changi airport is usually bright and spacious... and yeah aperture keep the number 4 and above for group shots of 10 pp

    Say 1/60 f5.6 no flash iso 200
    they allowed ppl shooting inside their airport?

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the many suggestions. Maybe to clear things up.

    Im using a Nikon D80. I do have the kit lens 18-135 with me.

    I do have a metz mecablitz 32z1 flash but dont want to utilise it because of some reasons. Dont intend to set up tripod too as a big group we'll be moving around.

    Cant use built in flash as the lens hood will cause a shadow. Even without lens hood at widest 18mm, there will still be a shadow cast on the picture.

    So Im asking, if for example using a kit lens, what would the ideal settings be?

    I think you will need the flash. The kit lens is prob not fast enough for indoors without tripod, unless you push up the ISO.
    I'm not sure which part and time of the day you are going to Changi Airport. For Night, the viewing gallery and even the restaurants. Eg Outside Soup Restaurant at T2, at ISO 800, f2.8, I was getting 1/20s (have IS lens) at night.

    Hmm... I read in books, journals and while exchange conversations with the more experienced than me photographers.

    Judging from the comments so far, hope I'm not wrong.

    Actually no hard and fast rule lah, simply try and see what works. Dun have to strictly stick to 400 only.

    Thanks for guiding. I agreed with you, especially so after have taken night shots with my camera with setting of ISO 100 and 200, I must say the result are amazing.

    it will most likely be indoor in the airport. maybe near the departure hall....

    anyone can shed some light on possible settings ?

    i was thinking f4 1/60 iso 800 no flash, up the exposure compensation ?

    there is no fixed settings, it all depends on the amount of light on your subject
    if you are using M mode, upping the exposure compensation will do nothing to your exposure

    I suggest looking for the brightest place and shoot there
    remove the lens hood
    use flash
    up your iso as much as you dare (noise)
    use minimum 1/60 shutter speed (to avoid camera shake + subject movement)
    use the aperture that gives you enough DOF to cover your subjects

    good luck
