    Yesterday I took my daughter to the O2 Acadamey in Brixton to see her favourite group, Black Veil Brides, headlining the 2013 Kerrang Tour. I researched the venue's photography policy and found that compact cameras were acceptable but not cameras which appeared to be professional, so my E-M5 was best left at home but I correctly thought I could get away with the E-P2 and 17mm f2.8. It's not really best suited to shooting at ISO 3200, as it essentially has the same sensor first used on the E-30, and the fixed focal length was a bit restrictive but hey, you just have to shoot with what you have. Consequently I didn't get any brilliant shots, but did get a few that hopefully captured the atmosphere and will at least provide a personal record of the occasion for the future. Here's a few that I took.

    Looks like you got some great shots. Just because there are newer sensors doesn't mean that the older sensors weren't capable of good photos. With good lenses they still produce fine shots. :cool:

    Thanks Bob,

    yes, there's many a good tune played on an old fiddle! With older (digital) cameras you just need to be aware of, and work around, any limitations. A camera in the hand is worth 2 better ones that have been conviscated by security! Although I'm knocked out by my E-M5 and what it can do, I still enjoy using the E-P2 and still regard it as a great camera in it's own right. :smile:
