Shooting weddings with a dx body
« on: July 15, 2014, 12:20:32 AM »
Hi guys, just want to ask if kaya ng dx bodies ang wedding events especially in a dim environment? Almost puro ambient light lang talaga yung mga wedding events. I have a nikon d300 with 50mm f1.8 and 35mm f1.8 lens. I am planning to use it on weddings. By the way, ako po ay isang VA. :)

Nagamit na ng mga PRO ang d300 sa weddings. I'm sure kaya yan pero hindi lang siguro lahat ng situation.

Let say medyo mabilis maglakad yung mga abay papunta sa altar, kailangan ng mataas na shutter or wider DOF.
Depending on your skill baka mas marami misfocus sa F1.8 kung naglalakad towards the camera. Kapag naman F4 ginamit mo magsusuffer naman ISO.

For creative and directed shots I'm sure kaya ng d300.

Yes, it could be done.  Just pair it with a fast prime for good measure.  Everybody has got to start somewhere.  I won't even feel under-equipped shooting one with, say, a Fuji X-T1 paired with the 35mm f/1.4 prime only (even in available light).  I'll pack lots of extra batteries, though.

You can shoot dx bodies for weddings, it's easier since you have fast lenses and a pro body layout like the d300. It doesn't matter what gear you have right now.  The more you practice your camera, the better you will learn how to find a work around under certain light condition.  Plan your shoot and anticipate ;)
