Noob question, how to take a sharp family photo under dim
light condition? I am currently using a Canon EOS400D with stock lens.
I got this "smart" idea to use ISO1600 to make shuttle speed
higher (as I was hand holding my camera) and to not make the flash so glaring
(is this true?) The other details are: f/4.0, exposure 1/8 and focal length 24mm.
The photo was not sharp and details were not there.
Any tips to improve on this? Would getting a better lens help?
If a tripod was used, and the exposure is more than 1/8, is taking family
potrait still possible?
Thanks in advance!
