A prime lens, say 35mm or 50mm, are best for indoor photography where light intensity varies highly within small areas. They usually have a fast autofocus, good for events. The 50mm lens is versatile enough to cope with group and portrait photos alike. Within prime lenses, look for f1.2 to f2.0, they take the most light in. In this layout, consider also ...


Your Question is beyond broad in spectrum. You only stated what body you had and nothing about your level of skills or what lenses you already tested or looking to buy. Lenses can range from 150$ (or less) second hand to 2000$ or more. I will attempt to answer your question in detail since I own a D3200 myself. I have the stock 18-55mm that comes with a ...


The classic response would be something fast and slightly wide. I would go for a 35mm equivalent. Take a look at the work of William Albert Allard for inspiration.


The G7X should help you out a little, but it's still going to be a tough ask. That kind of shooting, without a flash, is a tough ask of even a full-frame dSLR. However, the lens on the G7X is f/1.8-f/2.8, so you've got a fighting chance. And the 1"-format 20MP sensor should help. You could also attempt googling up tips for Sony RX-100 shooters, since it's ...


Low-light, no flash, you basically want to shoot with your widest aperture, and then you have no choice but to crank up the ISO until you get shutter speeds fast enough to get exposures without undesirable motion blur. (Although intentional motion blur can be a creative technique.) If you were shopping for a camera you would want to get one with the ...


I posit this as a possible explanation: Since the spacing of the effect is uniform, this suggests that the latent images you see are the electronic remnants of 'hottest' parts of the previous few frames that were captured by the CMOS sensor. I'm not suggesting that this is a collage of multiple captures, but that the sensor has an inherent 'refresh rate' ...


If you know the daytime brightness for a properly exposed scene, and the nighttime brightness, you can just calculate how many stops difference between the two you have and set the night aperture accordingly. Say, 2048lux day, 64lux darkness = 5 stops difference. (log2(2048)-log2(64)) I don't know how focus comes into this, though, that wouldn't change ...
