Jimmy Buffett performs at the First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre on June 27, 2015

Finding the Little Things Away From the Stage

While at the Jimmy Buffett concert a week or so ago I noticed this great scene while looking around the venue. In the upper deck there was a great light that cast a large shadow of the suite goers onto the wall. I swung my camera up to make this photo. The light was not a particularly flattering one so I knew at the time that this would be a black and white photo. This is also a testament to the power of the Canon Powershot G16 camera. This is a fully zoomed in photo from my seat into the upper deck, and it looks great. This is a great camera that I would recommend to anyone looking for a powerful point and shoot.

    Hi I really enjoy your blog. Thanks so much for the G16 images. I have a 15 year old son in AAU basketball and was thinking about getting the G16 for some action shots. It has 12.2 fps and a good fast shutter speed, I thought I could probably get some usable action with it. I am an amateur, so I wonder if you could offer an opinion about this camera for that purpose. Thanks again.

      I think that it may not be too good in a dark gym like most basketball is played in. I was just barely able to get some good results with it in an NBA arena with the TV lights on. A basic dSLR (like the Rebel series) with a fast lens would be your best bet. If you can get close enough the 50mm 1.8 is a good lens. It is fast enough for the dark gym, and only around $100. Thanks for reading the blog!
