Default Recommendations For Gig Photography

My daughter has been shooting shows for several years now (everything from tiny clubs to arenas and open air festivals), but her 50D is starting to fail. Unfortunately, the faults are intermittent and the Canon service place in Glasgow were unable to help out much.

She would love a 5D Mark III, however it is currently out of the question due to cost. Would a 7D do the job? A lot of the venues she shoots at regularly are not as well lit as they used to be, so does this camera perform well at high iso?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I would say that the 7D would certainly do no worse than the 50D- or at least very little in it either way. And in many other areas is superior to the 50D- not least speed.
Maybe consider the 60D also...?
That tilting screen would prove very useful in gigs for dramatic low band shots or over the crowd shooting...

You might wait to see how the 6D pans out one reviewed. A 5DII might be a big step up in low loght situations as well.

Many thanks for trying to help out guys, but as hubby decided the kitty could be stretched, one lucky young woman has a 5D Mark III winging its way towards her as I type!
