Thread: what to expect

  1. #1

    Default what to expect

    some "benchmarks" for typical exposure values, ALL AT ISO 400:

    1. indoor fashion show: f2.8, 1/125

    2. indoor automesse/carshow: f4, 1/30

    3. indoor event: f4, 1/60

    4. sentosa, no rain ("island life, love it") : f5.6, 1/2000

    5.afternoon along the streets in the city, no rain: f5.6, 1/250

    6. motor racing, no rain : f5.6, 1/1000

    7. after evening, along the streets, but still not yet night, ie eg from 7pm to 8pm: f5.6, 1/8 (using flash is optional)

    8. night scenery of city: f8, 8 seconds

    9. at night, in the garden where cocktail party is held (using flash is optional) : f2, 2 seconds

    10. daytime, on vacation tour, no rain : f5.6, 1/1000

    11. rainy day, for the artistic shot: f4, 1/60

    these values are what i recall that will most likely pop up in your exposure meter, with error of +- 1stop. as always, it is only a rough guide. have fun!
