Precision Camera and Fujifilm sponsored a free live music photography event, open to the public. I thought it was a perfect way to test the Fujifilm GFX 50R. I’ve had the GFX 50R for over a year and a half and used it extensively. However, shooting a concert with it was something new.
Like many of these venues, The Ballroom @ Spider House was dark. These places are a real torture for high-quality photography. Expecting less than optimal lighting, I brought my secret-for-now Canon EF lens attached via an adapter. Its large f2 aperture was brighter than my two native Fuji lenses.
Shooting at f2 and ISO 2500, I got a fast 1/250th of a second shutter. More than enough to capture all but the most enthusiastic performer. Here we have lead singer Nadia from Tortuga Shades.
