Not said hello before - so HELLO!
Thanks for the photos - I assume you didn't use flash?
I am about to buy a digital camera (I am quite a novice on the subject) and wondered if pictures like this can be taken in average light conditions without flash using this technology? Don't worry if you are unable to answer as I am sure some of our photography experts will be able to advise.
Yes, you're right, I didn't use flash. If you like to buy a digital camera I would recommend a SLR camera. I have a Nikon D70 as my major camera. There are newer cameras now than this older D70 but pictures with this camera are great even in average light condition.
The only problem is that this camera is quite big and it's hard to smuggle it into a concert venue. It also makes a loud "click" sound which is quite disturbing during the performance.
For concerts I have a smaller camera a Canon IXUS 65. That camera is small and flat and until now I was able to take it with me on each concert. But a smaller camera means also a smaller lens. If light conditions are low like during a performance you can have trouble to get some good shots without flashlight as you can see in my pictures. The more I have to zoom in the more blurry the photos become.
Steve and Stuart have good cameras. They are smaller than my Nikon but have a much bigger lens than my Canon. Pictures with their cameras become very good as you can see in many threads of this forum. Maybe they can tell you which model they use if they read this. I remember it's a Sony but that's all I remember.
Steve and Stuart, maybe you can help here? i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
