Question about Cameras
What do I have to do to get my rebel XTi to photograph in very low light conditions?
If you want to shoot static content eg. landscapes in the afternoon etc., you need long exposure times and of course a tripod. If your lens has image stabilization, do not forget to turn it off while you mount your camera on the tripod.
The other thing you can do, but it will cost you money, is get a brighter lens, (eg. F2.8). This combined with Image Stabilization will give you more freedom to capture moments in low light conditions, as a brighter lens can give you a brighter result without having to increase ISO.
Finally, another cheap method is to increase ISO. Of course this brings noise into the picture. Up to ISO 400 you may not notice the difference, but if you go higher, you will. If we are talking about point and shoot photos that you are going to print them on normal photo dimensions, a certain amount of noise won't be noticeable.
Hope this helps.
