Re: Best Q2 a ouple of tips.

Hi, I hope my short post offers one bit of solid advice while serving as a "bump up" reply so Q2 users can see your thread/question.

I have shot concerts for decades. From Sinatra to Elvis and well beyond. I still do the occasional oldies show. Shooting Johnny Mathis is different than a modern rock show but (!) one point is key...dial down on exposure compensation. Going -2 or even -3 usually saves faces from being washed out. This might depend on just how close you are sitting. Shoot RAW to adjust tricky lighting later.

I'm not a Q2 shooter so I am not certain it is the proper tool. Others would know better. These days venues are strict about camera gear but they always allow me to bring in my small Sony RX100 IV.

Good luck and I do hope this bumps up your thread.
