Re: Renting FX camera as a trial run: D4s vs D800E vs Df?
In reply to tlrfoto, Apr 22, 2014

As a hobbyist photographer my normal D5200 suits me just fine for 90% of what I like to shoot. I've had a couple recent opportunities to shoot some concerts and have realized that my D5200, while it does a passable job in low light (twilight etc.), it's sensor just isn't up to the task of holding the level of detail I'm looking for in the dynamic and often poor lighting conditions present at indoor concerts.

My question if I'm going to rent a FX camera for a weekend of concerts, which out of these three would be the best performance for the $$$, D4s (~$200), D800E (~$110), or Df (~$100)?

I realize the D4s is a powerhouse, but is the extra $100 worth it?

Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.

Will this shoot provide you with opportunities for future jobs? If so, d4s. Otherwise Df. Since getting mine it's bee great in low light but u never shot a concert before.
