"D7100 Setting Question"


Rome, US
          

Hello, I just received my new D7100. I am a newbie but I love this camera!
I have a question, my daughter is going to be in a pageant, it will be in a school auditorium, low lighting situation. Can someone help me with what settings to use? Thanks!

I am in the process of reading the manual but the pageant is tonight..lol

You'll definitely want a big flash like the sb800 or a fast lens (2.8 or even 1.8).

ISO will need to be fairly high most likely.

Shoot RAW. Set the ISO to 3200. You can leave White Balance on AUTO, as I'm guessing you're not comfortable with setting it on scene...

Go ahead and use Program, and be watchful if the camera is indicating there's not enough light, in which case, boost ISO to 6400.

since your a begginer and the pageant is tonight I would suggest to put it in P mode and choose the largest aperture it allows you.that means the smallest number.use your 50mm lens if you can get close enough.put the white balance in auto and the iso in auto.hold the camera as steady as possible and hope for the best.I see that you have capture NX2 so save pics in jpeg and raw.you have a lot of camera there so enjoy it and practice and study.

there is no problem to big or small that can't be fixed with brute strength and ignorance visit my gallery
