Hey, So I recently bought my first SLR, a Rebel XS. One of the main things I want to do with it is take photos in low light situations. I'm involved in some stuff and we tend to have a lot of indoor bar/club events. I was told that I should get the 50mm f1.8, which I did. We aren't having events till the school year starts again but I've been using it early just to practice in order to be set for the real deal. Here are issues that are coming up, any help would be appreciated. 1. The images are too cropped. The XS has a aps-c sensor, so it's smaller by definition, I get that. But it seems to be really difficult to get a group photo without having to back up to the other side of the room. Does anyone use a cheap wide angle converter that they can recommend? 2. It's useless without flash The main reason why I bought it, instead of sticking with the kit lens, was because I didn't want to use flash. When it's that dark it's just annoying to have a bright light shine in your eyes. Right now, if I don't use the flash at all it takes too long for the camera to take the photo, and it's too blurry. So I'm finding that I have to use the flash anyways, making the purchase of the 50mm moot in the first place. I'm just wondering how others, who shoot in similar situations, deal with it. And if you do use your flash, do you still use the f1.8 (or faster) or do you use a different lens? Thanks a lot for any help!
