Dance Recital

Discussion in 'People' started by mike mac, Jun 2, 2005.

  1. Went to a dance recital on Wednesday night brought along the D2H and the 70-200 VR. These were shot from about 8 rows back, the lighting was terrible accounting for very low shutter speeds and the need to shoot ISO 1600. The light was constantly changing making the WB very difficult.
    I thought the D2H did well handling these conditions and the noise wasn't bad at all.
