Default LF1 Theater

Testing out my newly acquired LF1 for indoor events. Stage radio production of It's a Wonderful Life. FZ150 has functioned pretty well as my silent camera, but I was looking for possible lower ISO at higher shutter speeds. Got for the most part 1 full stop lower with ISO 800 to 1600. Very pleased. EVF is useful for holding camera steady and not bothering other patrons with the camera out in front of my arms.

G'day mate

A good set of images here - the performers are also obviously putting their all into it as well
And with the FZ series in 'silent' mode - yeah, it's great isn't is ... to be able to shoot in such an environment without the bluddy-grate-klunk going off all the time

Thanks for the comments. It was a head slapper when I realized how disturbing a DSLR was to the audience. If I can get close, that is mostly true in my small town venues, I use my Panasonics. In the one larger venue, I use a Canon G1X that I can make work up to ISO 12,800. For newspaper printing, a DSLR just isn't necessary. And I would make the case that for family photos, DSLRs are overkill.
