    Low Light Hassy Shooting

    What are my options for shooting in low light with a Hassy, besides flash or fast film? I don't see any fast lenses ...

    Thanks! I KNOW y'all will have more than the answer!

    Well, besides flash and fast film there aren't really any other options, are there?
    Delta 3200 is great stuff.

    Ah! You can't tell me that! Surely there is SOMETHING! I do like Delta 3200, but I often need a finer grain AND have low light.

    Well, it depends just how low the light is. I recently took some photos of our new baby, just after he was born, with the obstetrician in the delivery suite at the hospital. The light was deceptively low. I was getting something like 1/8 s at f8 with Delta 3200. There are a couple of great 1600 ISO films around if you have a bit of light to play with.

    A tripod, cable release, use of the mirror lock up button, long exposure, and reciprocity chart.

    Get an F series and the magnificent 110/2 lens. Or a Rolleiflex and forget about the mirror bounce - adds another stop at least.

    More economical is to get a monopod if a tripod won't do. Monopods are 2/3 less likely to cause the problems tripods introduce.

    Ya, I was thinking about lengthening the exposure...perhaps I'll have to dig out my tripod & learn how to keep li'l ones still [or master a new kind of action shot]. What's a reciprocity chart?

    Darn, when I first read about teleconverters I thought they went the opposite direction in f-stops & didn't realize they lengthened the focal distance. What a piece of equipment that'd be!

    Can I use an F series with a 503cx?

    Edited: I see I can use the FE, so I assume the F s just older...110/2 would be great! What else do you like about the lens?

    No. Sorry. The F (and FE) series lenses has no built in shutter, and can only be used with the 200 series bodies. The fastest lens for any 500 series body is the 80/2.8.

    Pamela, Neopan 1600 in Xtol can produce beautiful fine grain.
