I went to a group called Toronto Photo Meetup group session shooting indoor this Saturday.

All with 28mm2.8. No flash of course. About 20 of us swarming the little church with tripods.

dan,
these are all nice and very detailed but do they represent the actual colors. it seems to me that a custom wht balance would have been better.

Actually, I like the colors--they work well for me. The detail in the shots is awesome.

Taken with my favorite lens 135mm2.8. Sort of like flattened. That would have been different if I used a wider angle lens.

Hi Roy,
I have no clue which is better or not. I have used AWB . The source of light was very complex all coming from stained glass of the church as shown. I am sorry about the underexposed and overexposed area which was unavoidable.

I think they're awesome! I love the organ pipes, and thought the roof photos were well done. I've been pretty pleased with the auto white balance and know what you mean about complex light sources - I took some photos in a library and thought the AWB did a decent job. I want to go back when I have a longer, faster lens than the one I was using (used a 24 2.8 and it was too wide for what I wanted to capture) - I was disappointed with mine. You have given me courage to try it again.

I believe 24mm2.8 is more than fast enough as all the pict above were at exactly f8 - a sweet spot for most lens. A steady tripod is a must too.

Well there is some improvement on the image quality and US$23 out of my pocket for a year's use.
