More information would help. Basically, anyone reading this would be asking "why should I lend you my equipment?".sathea said:i have been using coolpix 4300.
will be shooting for a event in a hotel, therefore i need a dslr for shooting in the low light condition.
Even you tried SLR before, SLR/DSLR still some different.mpenza said:do you have experience shooting with SLR/DSLR? It's quite different from using a consumer/prosumer digicam.
how true, i need a certain trust to my equipment before i can do the job, and that takes some days to get used to.SoNn7 said:. So if you cant get used to it, think it wont perform perfectly. Just my 2 cents of words
maybe...espn said:No offence, but seems from it is that your friend actually asked you to cover this event for him at your own expense, if so, just make do with your current equipment is fine, there's really no need for such a hassle to borrow a DSLR to cover his event.
I can roughly guess what event it is, but if he's not paying, don't bother with it, he should expect what you can deliver and knows what you will deliver.
