Default Got to photograph a legend

His last trip to LA. He promised this would be his last set of live performances. I was very fortunate to be able to see him one last time. The venue allowed non-professional cameras with lenses shorter the 2 inches.
Photographically it's not that good but hey, It's Clapton.

What does that mean....non-professional cameras with lens less than 2"? There are some pocket cameras with 40X zoom lenses that take incredible pictures. Ok I understand no 3 foot lenses, but if you are sitting in the back you might need just that as compared to those sitting in the front row. Id sooner have a guy with a "pro" camera shooting than all those dickheads waving their phones in the air lighting up the place and being very disruptive. Now that that is over.....great shot.

"There are some pocket cameras with 40X zoom lenses that take incredible pictures."

This may be true outdoors, but indoors when one starts to zoom then the amount of needed light for a decent pix goes up exponentially and/or the ISO. Instead, in those (low light) cases, what's needed for a decent pix, as you would expect, is a large sensor camera.

In concerts, the lighting isnt so low light. Massively bright spotlights on the key performers, while the drummer or other musicians are in relatively dark lighting makes for not the best of shooting conditions. But Id say any camera including phones make for an ok picture with the available light. You just have to know what youre doing and when you have to do it.

Think Pentax Q with an adapter for the 70mm Pentax 110 lens.

The original Q had a 5.6 crop factor, making it slightly less than 400mm equivalent. Perfect for concerts.

I have two Nikon D7000s. I regret in a way getting the second one. After years of using the big clunky dslr Id like to go with a smaller camera that will give an even better image. Time to think about that camera. I will look into the Pentax Barbarian. Thanks.
