    So I took my hacked GH2 w/20mm 1.7, to a show in Chicago...
    It was very dark and the spots were mostly red...ISO 5000 to get exposure.
    Handheld and only the in camera mic...
    I only took a few clips, two full songs and a couple of partials thinking it wouldn't turn out very well...
    But gosh if I wasn't surprised how well this camera did...

    For the record, not everyone appreciates this band from New Jersey, Screaming Females, but I love their work.
    They are young, but have 5 great CDs, really know how to rock and always restore a little youth to my 57 years.

    Great video, black and white is perfect for this type of concert. I have never heard of the band before, but this is right up my street, loved every second of it. :2thumbs:

    Marissa Paternoster on lead, is one of the finest players I've ever seen.

    I've shot a few live music events, and I'm always shocked at how clear the audio is from the in-camera mic. B&W looks great. Have you shot down to 12800 ISO B&W? It's surprisingly really great.
