I will be photographing an outdoor ceremony during the late evening/early night times. I'm beyond excited and welcome the challenge. Speaking of which, I am currently using a very trusty 20d along with EF 50mm 1:1.8 II and EF 28-105mm 1:3.5-4.5. I will have an external flash w/ diffuser (which I prefer not to use too much or at all, just my personal preference) and a tripod in case of extreme low lighting conditions.

In the highly event that I will not be able to upgrade to a 50d before the event (for a much higher ISO options and better fps), I will be somewhat restricted with 20Ds ISO capabilities. Any suggestions?

Could you rent a 7D or a 50D in time? They're a reasonable price for a day or 3.

Lotsa options if you require speed for reasonable prices.

for night shooting: consider busting out the monopod/tripod :D

Old camera and slow lenses... you need to use flash (not ideal) or get better gear if it's really low light. I'd possibly use multiple radio triggered slaves. Depends on the conditions, you need to tell us more, and do some experimentation and location scouting.

Yes...I do plan to do some freelance experimenting in some similar lighting situations. If my current equipment won't give me quality work using the tripod, I will have to make at least a camera upgrade sooner than I originally expected.

Thanks for the feedback!
