    For wedding photography I have found the Fuji V10 excellent because of
    low light capability and ASA 1600 rating. I just purchased the newer
    Fuji F30 which is rated 3200 ASA and takes incredible stills at night
    withourt a flash, also very nice movies.

    I didn't see the original post, but bear in mind that most professionals are
    still using film in medium format for key shots, especially big groups. To
    get these results that what you should use (even if you scan the film and
    work on the files that way). Digital SLR's are really only a substitute for
    35mm SLRs: mind you8 people do use thoise for weddings they tell me...

  3. One of the main reasons film is used (apart from customer requests of
    course) is that most wedding photography has an important BW component and
    digital cameras suck bigtime at black and white imagery.
    Nothing beats good silver halide black and white film with prints handmade
    on quality fiber paper, no digital process even comes close.

  4. If I were still doing weddings, I wouldn't hesitate to use my 10D and
    you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    Any suggestions on how to set the Nikon D70 for higher iso ratings?
    A, S or P mode, etc. ?

    Yes, press and hold ISO button, and rotate Main Command Dial to ISO
    setting of your choice.

  7. There has to be an option for those couples who cannot afford a real
    photographer.

    But not everyone that takes on the title "Wedding Photographer" is good.
    There are no barriers to entry to become a photographer. No exams to pass,
    no peer review, no licensing requirement as a condition of retaining one's
    credentials. Photography is not a profession. Anyone can call himself a
    photographer.

    Some amateur wedding photographers produce results that are technically
    superior to, and more pleasing than, the work of "professional wedding
    photographers."

    Caveat Emptor!

  9. From what I've seen through the years, that number is extremely small.

    I've got to say.. We spent an insane amount of $$ for the photographer to
    do our wedding. His samples that he showed us looked really nice. I gave
    a friend my new (at the time) Canon Powershot G3 camera and showed him how
    to use it. Over about 95% of the photographer's shots, I preferred the
    ones my friend took with my G3. He just happened to "capture the moments"
    better than the photographer did in my opinion. So, just food for thought.

    I just returned from a trip using both the nikon D70 digital SLR and
    the Fuji V10 and although the Nikon is clearly better in terms of image
    quality, it is larger and heavier and more cumbersome than the V10
    which can be placed into a pocket and pulled out for a quick
    spontaneuous shot while hiking etc.

    The LCD screen on the V10 is larger and doesnt need a viewfinder. The
    D70 has a small LCD and uses a viewfinder like the conventional SLR's.
    I must say that the larger LCD is an advantage.
