Hi Sarah! What gear do you shoot live shows with? I'm thinking of buying my first camera and lens/lenses so I'm trying to gather as much info about cameras that photographers use and their opinions on their gear/what gear is good for a new comer. If you have the time, could you please answer this? Thank you so much xx
Hello! I shoot with a Nikon D3100 and 35mm f/1.8 lens. I started off with a 50mm 1.8, but I recently discovered that I like much wider shots though so I pretty much only use my 35 for concerts now especially since my camera isn’t full frame. The D3100 is a really cheap starter camera and I love it. If you can afford a better one like the D7000, I would start with that one though.
The only downside of my D3100 is the amount of noise (grain) it produces. Other than that, I love it. I’m already looking to upgrade after 3 years of shooting with it though.
Lots of good memory cards are also important, so keep that in mind. As well as a decent camera bag.
