or change the requirements. ease up on the horse stuff. the op won't get good pics in this price range. best to let it go.

Perhaps his budget is more flexible than his requirements.

Pentax k-x would probably b your best choice within the $500 range.

And the lenses I mention form sigma are available for the pentax as well. They do not have a inexpensive 50 1.8 but they have a good 50 1.4.

TCav Nov 28, 2010 2:47 PM

But a 50mm lens won't do what the OP wants. A 77mm lens will barely do it.

shoturtle Nov 28, 2010 2:55 PM

not the horse thing the regular indoor stuff, the 50 1.4 should do well. There were 2 parts to the op's question.

I need a great camera for outdoor photos, indoor photos with low light for ceremonies that take place in buildings like weddings, indoor arenas with little lighting.

It's not really very good for that either.

I beg to differ, I used the 50 1.4 for wedding and indoor low light on my canon, And it is a does do a nice job in indoor low light photos. I use it all the time when a flash is not advisable for indoor dancing.

Okay so what model cameras do I need to look for IF Im just needing the indoor arena for documenting my own horse.

Honestly I don't need PRO pics that I'm going to sell for these indoor pictures. However I do want them to at least capture the horse without making horse and rider into a mass blob.

I sure hope that makes sense. I'm SO tired right now.

[QUOTE=shoturtle;1171808]All these dslr are only okay for low light to no light without a good external flash. To rally get good indoor low light shots, a good external flash bouncing off the ceiling will really help.

Can you buy external flash with the NIkon and Canon I mentioned ?

i'ts difficult to determine what type of image you would be satisfied with. perhaps a quick search on flickr and posting a link here would help.

this close (ignore the bull. just an example)

or THIS close

you'll notice the blur as the shutter speeds were lowish (the second was at 1/50).
