Re: Crystal Ball Required...

I am not shooting static subjects. I shoot interviews in a very dim light without flash trying to get 1/160 at 3200 ISO using 70-200mm F2.8 or 120-300mm F2.8. Very dull light situation. Lets put it this way, light is so low sometimes that in the 50 foot room if I am standing at one wall I can't clearly see who is standing at the other. Can't go to the brighter fix lens because I never know where I am going to end up. Interviewers don't like camera shutter sound so I end up shooting at the long end of the lens and I need to isolate the subject anyway so

During interviews people move quite a bit so even at 1/160 I get a lot of photos with movement. BTW, 1/160 is already 2 stops underexposed. If I expose correctly I would get something like 1/30-1/40 speed with 100% blur. And this is the best case. I have seen as low as 1/15.
