I have tried to use a DSLR-camera indoor with no flash by putting the ISO at maximum and use a slow shutter-speed. But I am not able to match my compact camera when it comes to brightness and depth-of-field. When I make the aperture larger the images of course gets brighter, but the depth-of-field becomes very bad. I have to use F/5.6 to get something that looks as close to as bright as the compact-camera, but then the depth-of-field is not nearly as good. How can I use a DSLR-camera to get a picture indoors with no flash with a good depth-of-field and bright enough so that it is close to match my compact camera? It seems like I have misunderstood something. I am using a Canon Rebel XTi with the original lens and a Canon Ixus 95is.
