    This was my first concert photography with the D700. The last concert with the D200 was R.E.M. and I was routinely running ISO1600, to keep the shutterspeed up, and accepting the noise levels.

    Now with the D700 I could easily reach for ISO6400, but rarely had to go that far. I used spot metering whilst focusing on skintones and an EV adjust of -1. These photos are uploaded as they were exposed. The only photoshop work entailed matting out of stray background and some cropping - we were close, but not that close! The sharpness of the D700 with the 70-200mm, even with the TC-20EII, easily allowed 200% cropping - credit also to the excellent focus system of the D700, especially the 3D tracking which works like magic.

      Is it possible to using Pro camera in concerts ?

      I carry it in a back pack and then assemble it once the lights go off... either way there are so many people with small cameras, and if you're close enough you can et some pretty good shots like I got at a Sting concert with our small Casio camera...

      Great to see the guys though never quite the same after Don Felder got the boot.

    14. youngrobv 52 months ago | reply

      Indeed, it will never be the same again without Felder, just listen to the coda of Hotel California in concert these days...

      But for the rest, especially those harmonies, it's still pretty good!
