Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

Another show with the D800. No, I'm not retiring my Nikon D3 and D700 just yet, but I am testing the D800 to see just what it can do. So far, it seems to offer the same high ISO performance (at a pixel level) to the D3 and D700, but with much more resolution. The only downside (apart from the larger file size) is the slower shooting speed of the D800.

Full set and shooting notes coming up.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
