Shooting at night under stadium lighting

Help.

I've got an assignment to shoot a sporting event in the evening under stadium lighting. I've never shot under artifical light before. Is there something I should do to guarantee success? I'll be using my Sony DV2100 probably from the press box area.

Thanks.

Steve

If you meant to say your camera was a VX2100, then you are in good shape, in fact you have one of the best cameras there is for low light.

I shoot high school football with a VX2000 and a PD170 and both of those cameras can see better in low light than my own eyes.

Manual white balance and then recognize that you may have to do more in post if the stadium has those terrible metal halide lights.
