taking photos with old Canon T50+Tokina zoom lense 80mm-200mm+attachable flash at a concert?
Is it possible from a distance about 30-50 meters?

I don't really know much about this camera coz it's left by my dad. Should i set the aperture to Auto or should i set to max aperture, coz at the concert it'll be dark. Shutter speed don't seem to be adjustable.

pls advice

fumukim, don't bother with the flash. at that range, you'll be better off with a higher ISO film like what denizenx says... press 800 is good. can push to 1600 at a pinch. :thumbsup:

thanks for ur reply.

My camera is really old, it doesn't have a function to set the shutter speed, it sound always the same. ok. i'll try get a 800 or 1600, but i heard that the outcome photos will look grainy.
