Hello, guys, I'm sure you've had many topics on taking pics at a concert and i found a few that helped. But with my camera, canon dx6490 what are the best settings?
I have taking shots as far from the 12 th row and have had great results. I'll be going to a concert this night, Dream Theater and will have a photo pass. So what would be the best settings?
The best pictures I have taken at a concert was with P mode of PASM, 1/8 shutter speed(I believe) and ISO400, and of coure no flash. Since I'll be closer should I use the the feature which allows to take pictures better while closer(the icon is a flower)?
Thanks for any help...I will post some pictures I have taken that have come out well
This is Glenn Tipton and K.K Downing shot from the 12th row of The Borgota in Atlantic City, NJ This was shot with the settings mentioned above

I own a kodak dx6490...(I never heard about the canon dx6490)

try to:

-keep your iso over 200

-keep the fastest shutter speed possible

-Set the aparturearound F3.2

Same as Boily , Aperture mode ,iso 200 ,also setthe camera to landscape.You will notice noise on the pictures at 400 iso, that can be fixed using neat image or picture cooler .

When i was further away I set the light thingy to -0.7 and -1.7 and the pics were taken much better than when i would allow more light in. Thanks for the help.
