Hello -

I'm shooting a 50th wedding anniversary on the 24th of October. The event will mostly be inside, in fairly low light, but definatly doable. I was wondering if you'd pick up any other gear. Here's what we've planned for me to shoot

1. Actual reception
2. Group shots (consisting of up to 25 individuals)
3. Candids

My question, should I go full-frame for this event. i was thinking:

5D with 16-35
300D with 70-200 f/2.8 IS

Just wondering what your oppinions were :)

Thanks
Andrew

You've got a big jump in focal lengths between the 35mm on the 5D and the 70mm on the DigiReb. I think the best choice for the 5D would be a 24-70 or 24-105 zoom

For shooting a group of 20 will 24 be wide enough?

On FF it shouldn't be too long. 24's pretty wide, I think.

You would be amazed at how much wider that 24mm seems on a 5D versus the 1.6 crop camera. I've shot some rather large groups and the 24 would be fine. Of course you have to condition this with the fact that you have to have room to move around yourself. Trying to shoot large groups in small venues is not advisable even if you had something wider. If you pack 40 people into a shot with a 16-35 at 16mm you are going to end up with a certain amount of lens distortion.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.
