Film Speeds For Safari

20 November 2007 - 01:05 PM

Hi Im very new to the SLR game and looking for some advise of what speed films to take with me next April for wildlife pictures. I think something to cater for low light would be good as well as sunshine. Any help would be appreciated. Throw in the fact ive got all my dads old camera stuff ive got no idea what lenses to take .

[size=7]Hi Im new to this site and looking for some help. Whilst many are happy with digital snaps Im taking my dads old slr camear kit on safari . Dad was very keen and all this stuff hes got ive got no idea what it does. He passed away years ago so I cant even ask him unsure.gif So could any one tell me the best lenses to take with me on safari next year?
the following are the choices.

2X 4-56/70-210
1X 1:1.8 f=50mm
1x 1:2.8 f=28mm
1x auto teleconverter 2x for b200/bc 1
1x 35-45/35-70
1x 2.8/135
In real lay terms what do these figures mean?

what rolls of film should I take ? ie speed and make ?
would any of these lenses be good for infared photography?
