Its not the sharpest but with the little olympus camera I didn't want to go above iso 200. My girlfriend is a fan so I have seen a few concerts. Al allows cameras but the venue usually keeps the cameras to point and shoots.

Wow!! Great shot! I LOVE Weird Al! Aren't his concerts the best?!?

Maybe I'm from another era but I am not familiar with Wierd Al. However, I think this is a great shot for a point&shoot!

Weird Al is great! Good shot!

Well I guess an Olympus C750 is not really a point and shoot but it can be hard to get a rebel with a big zoom lense into the concert. I would like have Panasonic for the next concerts. The OIS should help and I think it will have more detail. Actually my girlfriend was able to bring in a canon film rebel and iso 1600 film to one venue. Her lense is pretty inexpensive so not much resolving power but some good shots.

My girlfriend is a big fan and goes to any concert in the area. We wait after the concert for the meet and greets and have met Al a few times.

this might be overkill but here a ton of Al pics.

This shot is not the clearist but I thought it was a bit unique.

Hey Call,

Don't feel bad. Weird Al has been around since the late '70's. He takes popular songs and re-writes them.

Remeber Spike Jones?? Kinda like that! Very funny stuff. The big difference is that Spike mostly changed the way the song was played where Weird Al changes the words, drastically. Al's stuff is only funny if you know the originial song. Otherwise it's just a silly song.
