I'm going to be doing concert photographs in available light, likely from a distance of around 50ft from the stage. The stage is generally pretty well lit, but I have to shoot from a balcony 50 ft from the stage. Here are some images I took with my Canon S5. Although they're perhaps a little bright, I don't think I could have gone under ISO 400. And the noise shows, and still there's lots of motion blurring. They were taken with a shutter speed of 1/8th sec., ISO 400, f3.5. I know I could have gone a little quicker, but I'm not sure I would have done any better with the motion blurring. Do you think I can expect much better images than this from a G2/G10 in the same circumstances probably using the 45-200mm lens (which I can get kind of cheap bundled with the camera)? By the way, I'm not really looking for a critique of these images, though I guess if it helps to explain a fundamental thing I'm doing wrong, then I have no problem with you picking it apart. I will be up for critiques when I have a real camera and can really learn how to make the most of it. :smile: For now, these are just to illustrate the likely lighting conditions.
