For you, I suggest to use P mode and forget about speed/aperture.

There is no fix aperture or shutter speed to use. It all depends on what you want to achieve. I can set easily set it to f/22, 30s if I want to maximise DOF. Or I can use f/2.8 to isolate a subject. So don't be so anal about finding an optimum aperture/shutter speed. Rather just go out and shoot more, experiment and have fun.

but being a manual camera...would this be harder?

Hi...since this thread is on speed/aperture for indoor, i like to add an enquiry on a related topic. How about for those indoor exhibitions like communicasia, motorshow?

Thanks

some places are brighter, some place are dimmer, how would one know the exact exposure without being there?

don't your camera has a exposure meter?
