It also depends on the lens. A fast lens (35mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.4, etc.) will make for faster shutter speeds.

The short answer is "Yes". The long answer is "it depends". As many reviewers have pointed out if you push the ISO over 800 you will lose quality. If you have enough light to shoot with ISO settings of 400 or less (and if the cats stay still ...), no problem with quality.

Direct flash is too harsh. You can get excellent results using an external tilt-swivel flash bouned off a white ceiling. Bouncing will give you much more diffuse and flattering light for your portraits, etc. with no red-eye.

thanks connor!

i got this camera a couple weeks ago. i still have much to learn about shutter/iso/etc, but i've been well pleased with the indoor results so far. i've been very impressed by the outdoor pic quality too and am looking forward to shooting some portraits.

thank you all for the tips! i plan to study & practice on them much more to improve.
