I was asked by bass voice of Sixte ajoutée to shoot their charity concert Saturday a week ago. In contrast to the first time I shot them in a small room in a church, they were singing in a big citizen hall that really fit them well. My D750 was scheduled to go to Nikon for an AF checkup after they found my AFS 80-200 perfectly ok. But I had to use it and could not fall back on the D700 which would have a shutter noise that is way too intrusive for an A Capella concert like this. So I used a borrowed (still debating whether I should keep it) 70-200VR1 and my Tamron 28-78/2.8 for all shots on the D750 and my 85/1.8 for the UV lit song. The first time I shot them I was using a borrowed Panasonic with completely electronic and therefore silent shutter, but that cam doesn't hold a candle to the D750 for these types of light. And the D750 is silent enough to not annoy the audience (I did glance at the people to see whether there was any reaction at all). In the end the D750 performed ok, apart from a complete lockup at the end and it is now already back from Nikon with an exchanged AF module. The last time I bought a Nikon body before the D750, it had a defocused AF module ;-( I did have stage side access, but as they were mostly at the front of the stage it was not much use…. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 I personally like the shadow man in blue better: #6 And no concert of Sixte ajoutée is complete without Martin doing the Hula: #7 The whole gallery: http://images.afximages.com/Concerts/Sixte-ajoutée-Haar-2015-1/ cheers afx
