i love my rebel xt. it shoots great pics on auto and its always great when there is lots of light, like outside on a sunny day. but, for shots without as much light, such as inside, or shadows, or espically concerts, plays, or performances where there is not only low light, but your shooting from dark to a lit stage. and how about night sky/star-scapes? sometimes i forget and come up with pitch black even if the conditions (like a well lit stage) look like it had enough light. i know you can jack up the iso, get a smaller aperature, and longer shutter speed. anything else? the flash is usually a no-go for performances, but it wouldn't fill enough anyway is there no easy way to get good pictures in the dark? do i need a different lens? what should i look for in a future lens for low light?
