Sony RX100-2 and school play
Aug 10, 2014


Today, I have to photograph a very important video, my grandaughter's school play!

The stage will be just over 50 feet from me and the lighting will probably not be very strong. The show will last about 2 hours.

I have a Sony RX100-2 and a Panasonic FZ150 to choose from. I used the FZ150 recently for a similar application and although the telephoto was great, the video was very dark and not as sharp as I have seen when I use this camera outdoors in bright sun. Outdoors, it is fantastic.

What would you use of these two and more importantly, what settings would you use?

Thank you very much and regards, Ken.
