Choose the "green box" setting. Let the camera decide for itself...

you will need high DOF. use A mode

so go for at less f5.6 and above for group shots.

btw. dun you think 50mm is very tight in a house?

You can use low dof as well, just use your flash.
How you know 50mm not enuff for his house? maybe he VRM and house is bigger than football field?

Not a pro here, but I think basically its due to the shutter speed. With the flash on the camera sets a faster shutter speed, however without the flash, when there is not enough light, the camera compensates by choosing a slower shutter speed to allow more light onto the sensor so as to get the correct exposure. With a slow shutter speed any tiny hand movement will result in the picture being blur.

So if you really need to shoot without flash, either open the aperture wider, increase the ISO or mount the camera on the tripod.

Indoors in daytime or ??

Daytime, you can try A mode with an ISO of about ISO 200 - 400. Should be able to use f4 or so... Else bump it larger to f2.8

When there's less light, then try using higher ISO speeds and larger apertures...

bump up iso... don't be shy to push up 800 or more and bear with the noise if your indoor is somehow dim. depending on your max aperture of your lens... sometimes even f1.4 doesn't help to get a sharp pic. Shutter speed below 1/60 quite prone to handshake. It depends how stable your hands are... some pro in CS can handheld at lower shutter speed... Get a IS lens if you have the budget... External flash is your ultimate answer :lovegrin:

Or get a camera with anti-shake built in.

Indoor light condition is proned to handshake blur, motion blur and too shallow Depth of field blur if one is not careful.

So make sure your shutter speed is faster enough (1/actual focal length guideline) and aperture is smaller enough (higher F/ number to have a higher DOF).

In most indoor situations, you need to use a high ISO in order to use a fast enough shutter speed and a smaller aperture.

You may also want to use -ve flash compensation and a higher ISO to strike a good exposure balance between the main subject and the darker background.
