What's the longest you'd do? I wouldn't go below 1/60 personally.

Like has been said, the camera is metering from your monitor. That means that the monitor is correctly exposed but the rest of the room is slightly under. Turn your monitor off, compose the shot, hold the shutter halfway down, turn the monitor on, then shoot. This will mean the monitor is slightly overexposed though.

Another thing to note is that all light is different colours, but i think halogen is close to 5000k which is the same as flash. It gets wonky when you use it under flourescent or tungsten lighting.

Yeah, 1/40 with a steady hand, but generally 1/60.

You guys have steadier hands than me. I can only go 1/100 on my 50mm f/1.4 before I get ticked off by the lack-of-sharpness.

Well, Depends on the focal length. Thankfully for you that f/1.4 makes 1/100 easy

With VR, I can hand-hold down to 1/4 on my 18-55, and I've done 1/10 for my 70-300 VR...

if i brace against something and dont have adrenaline coursing through my body i can do about 1/2 on the 24-70. but i dont think that is possible with a PS without stabilization.
