F1.2 / 1.4 /1.8 / 2.8 are able to do the trick.
Trade off shallow DOF
guess if its really low lighting, a large aperture wont help either especially when u wanna capture candid moments.. object(human in this case) wont be still for u to take at least.

the answer would be, read your meter to prevent underexposure, and sturdy hands or a tripod to prevent blur images, however if ure talking abt motion blurs, then increase ur ISO and open up ur apperture.

Just a thought... flash may not be recommended for candid shots... :think:
Candid is the moment prior to the flash usage.
Once the moment is capture... Dont really need to bother if the world's attention is on you. Use sparingly though. :)

I know... but don't forget...to turn off your AF-assist... else you would have a lot of short flash to your subject.... :bsmilie:

wad do u mean by read meter?...i look from live view and judge from eyes...sometimes histogram to prevent from under expose...

i use iso 200-400 EV+1 to EV+2 and slower Shutter speed to 1/40 - 1/60...coz the whole room is not very well lit and for ur info i use slr-like, not dslr...pushing high iso to 1600 or more will have noise :(...didnt intend to use flash as its no long candid

I do quite abit of low light photography, on my D80 the iso never goes above 640,
im not sure what body ure using, and if urs has a meter or not, but the meter is a gauge which tells u light entering ur cam, and to adjust ur settings accordingly to ur preference, either shutter or aperture, or even ISO...

From my recent (first serious) attempt at shooting the pre-CNY activities at China Town, usually ISO 1600 or 3200 if really no choice. f/2.8 or faster lenses, but I also did quite a few with a 3.5 lense most at ISO 1600. No flash. Worked great but there were times I wished I could go to ISO 6400.
