which lens

this weekend brings my Charity ghost hunt

http://www.pixalo.com/community/gene...ers-33189.html

so we are allowed to take cameras videos etc......... I do NOT want to be trailing round huge bag loads of stuff in the dark etc so i am in need of some advice as to the best camera lens otu of what i have got..............

I was thinking 400D and 20-40mm f2.8.. but the 400 only has 800 i think ISO and is more noisey than the 30D but it is lighter or how about the 50mm f1.8??????????? but on what camera.?

thoughts pls.

Re: which lens

Not sure which lens but make sure the camera is securely around your neck because when you get spooked it will be up in the air and on the floor!

Re: which lens

On a serious note, please be careful driving back at that early hour. I once set off at 5am and momentarily I fell asleep at the wheel. It was very frightening but at least I learned a valuable lesson. So if you feel yourself nodding pull in somewhere safe and have 10 minutes; it makes a big difference.

Re: which lens

The owner of one of the big halls locally does 'ghost tours'. One of the women in a tour screamed and swore that 'something had definitely brushed passed' - which indeed it had but no way was the owner going to tell her or the rest of the tour that it was one of his cats! And so the myth grows in the telling!

Re: which lens

It's great fun spending the night in a place on a ghost hunt especially if you are in a small group.

Re: which lens

Nifty fifty looks the good one, will help with low light issues. I see it's Jedburgh your going to, if it had been the haunted vaults in our South Bridge I was going to say don't bother with the camera, it wouldn't work. As I work with a lot of tour guides I've been reliably informed that for some apparent reasons cameras fail to work when down in the vaults, flashes wont flash. When you come back onto the street your camera will work fine again...spooky or not.

Re: which lens

well im back............ got some shots before it all started but as they were hand held im not sure about them yet............. took the camera round the first vigil and then packed it away for the night......... io dont use flash as it defeats the purpose and all u get is lots of "orbs" which are ntohing more than light hitting hte dust particles........... got some interesting shots walking round the graveyard next door to thejail at 5 am in the mist this morning tho! lol

final tally for those interested ............ i raised £373 for Sense Scotland so a big thanx to all!
