Is people talking at a dinner table considered "static"
Nov 22, 2012

I have a hard time figuring out if a OMD with a 2.8 lens would be enough for indoor portrait shots. Since I DON'T have the camera yet and I'm new to photogtraphy, it's difficult to tell...

I want the OMD + Oly 60 mm lens (no, I don't want the 45 lens because I want a black lens + macro + weather sealing) and I tried to google shutter speeds/f numbers vs moving/static subjects but ... what exactly is a "static" subject? Are people just talking at a dinner table considered "static"?  I mean, the are not running... but neither are they "static" while they talk or gently move.

In fact, what I really want to know is: considering IBIS, is f 2.8 enough  to freeze people for portraits shots indoor:

1. in the day time

2. at night

Pfffew.. not bad for a french speaking "frog"!:-)

Thanks!
