    Default What would your choice be?

    Given a low light environment (maybe say a birthday party at a ktv/pub), would you choose to:

    1) flash?
    2) ISO?
    3) or?

    Hope to see what most people would prefer..

    I would personally use the flash because I've got shaky hands.

    What would your choice be?

    using flash loses the feeling of having fun in a "dark" place.. sometimes i'm also tempted to pump up the iso just to get the "feel".. haha..

    I'll normally use bounce flash (a simple namecard to bounce the flash to the ceiling) just tweak the ev abit to get required effect..

    use flash, depends on the environment, adapt the flash to make it looks natural,
    if the place has black ceiling and black walls plus low light, bcos the owner of the place hate photography so much, and think it is cool, there is noting much you can do, just shoot with direct flash.

    Flash with ISO or Aperture to control the amount of light hitting the sensor. Conclusion, flash is a must. If better, use a speedlite
