    I have a canon s50 and I took a couple pictures of a recent concert i went to, to support the hurricane, just a local rock group playing. I was wondering if there are any tips in taking pics of an indoor concert.

    I did use flash in a couple pics, but it ruins the whole "stage/concert" sense

    maybe i should bring tripod, but it'll be to crowded to prop up a tripod :o

    tips or suggestions

    thx

    depending on the lighting, amt. of movement, etc...Increase your exposure, and increase the shutter speed a bit.The higher the ISO, the grainier your pics will look. you'll have to play around with it.

    you'd have to get up closer, use a flash, and open shutter a tad longer. your flash is very ineffective after 10-15 feet, if that. without the use of strobes or other pro lighting, you're assed out.

    the S50 cant do better in the dark agianst movement.. I know I had one.its a nice p&s though but its not best at capturing movement at night.

    my suggestion would be to set it in sports mode and use flash.

    oh yea, i just remembered. If you dont want the flash bothering people a technique i used to use was put your hand over the flash and take the picture.it does a good job of not making it as blurry without bothering others. i dont know how it works but it seemed to do the trick.
