Default (Good) Concert photography is hard

Some friends came through town this weekend and I took some pictures. I usually do bright outdoor landscapes, not dark nightclubs, so this was a challenge. Now I really understand the need for fast lenses and good high ISO quality for certain subjects.

First night I just did pre-show shots with flash (420 EX) and they came out pretty clear, but the lighting is flat compared to shots with no flash.

Here's one with the flash: http://www.pbase.com/image/20718980

Next night the lighting was a bit better so I took a bunch of ambient light shots and got a few decent ones. These are handheld at varying ISO (hmm ISO doesn't seem to show up in the EXIF), mostly 100.

Some shots came out fairly clear, but sometimes blur is a good thing. I like this one: http://www.pbase.com/image/20719257

Here's another shot that I like: http://www.pbase.com/image/20719093

Overall the G3 did well, but a 'real' camera with a decent lens would do better with ISO 800 or 1600 of course.

The G3 did pretty well for my GooGooDolls concert too

I shot at ISO400 the whole time.
Pictures were abit grainy so thats where a DSLR comes into play
