    Default If there is only 1 lense to bring for a full day Wedding event......

    Hi all,

    I am planning to try out some wedding day shots for my friend... as an apprentice/back up/experimental...... I've read up on all teh DOs and DO NOTs... very useful.

    QUestion:

    May I know what lense is good for events like that? Prob at at home and church in the day, then chinese restaurant/ballroom at night?

    And what ISO will you use? 800/1600? and PP to reduce the grain?

    Just a newbie to DSLR who needs lots of advice here.

    any lens have focal length range from 18mm to 55mm, 85mm or 135mm on a 1.5x crop factor DSLR.

    a powerful flash,

    lots of batteries for camera and flash.

    lots of CF cards

    using various ISO, can be , ISO 200 ~ ISO 800from outdoor to indoor.

    if only print on 4R prints, ISO 800 are fine, don't need to pp, unless you screw up the exposure.

    hello you can refer to this thread for more information: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=244340

    i believe most photographers use flash, pp away grains reduce picture quality which is undesirable. if you are on budget, tamron 17-50 f2.8 is fine, else 17-55 f2.8 IS USM will serve you better.
