The Eagles (Consert, Stockholm Globen 30/3-08)
Mar 31, 2008

Howdy friends!

Yesterday, I went to see The Eagles play at "Globen" (arena in Stockholm/Sweden) I brought my 40D (and 10D) and snapped a few pictures. The pics most certainly isn't great, I just wanted to ask you guys if these pics are "ok" considering the circumstances. They where all shot with my Sigma 70-300 mm f4.0-f5.6 DG Macro (not known to be the sharpest lens exactly) at ISO 1600, using the most crappy cheapo tripod ever (I REALLY need to put a few bucks on a new, sturdy tripod) I have never shot at a consert before - it's not all that easy! Creds to thouse who master that!

PS: My Sigma 17-70 jammed the other day, so I only had the Canon EF 50/f1.8 II and the Sigma 70-300 to play with. :o/

(I REALLY need a few more (good) lenses!) All lens donations are most welcome! ;O) Hahaha!

This first image is a Canon EF 50/f1.8 II pic, uncropped just to get a breif reference on my distance to the scen:

This pic isn't "softned" or anything like that. (motion blur and oversharpening) Can't deside if I like it or not.(Original): http://elfving73.smugmug.com/photos/272835080_L5tWn-O.jpg

And just for the fun of it, here is a 10D pic, shot in JPEG, at ISO 800

The 40D pics and the 10D pics are SOOO different, but I can't put my finger on what it is. One thing I noticed thou, is that the 40D tends to "overexpose" all the time, or if it's just so much more sensitive and infact more accurate? If I shoot outside in slight overcast condition for example, I need to underexpose by EV -1 and sometimes even EV -2 to get equal result to the 10D pics. Is that "normal"?
