Hey, Glenn Reynolds blogs about cameras, and he sets the standard, right? I just looked at a few of the pictures I took at the Aerosmith concert last week and I thought they came out surprisingly well for a pocket camera. I was using a Canon PowerShot SX260HS that I actually own to take pictures of campgrounds for my business web site. These pictures were not from close up, they were zoomed all the way out to 20x (I was up in the seats on the side, not on the floor or right by the stage). I shot with a no flash night mode the camera had that I had never played with. Given the time it takes to process each shot, it must be some kind of HDR thing but I was impressed it caught fast action pretty clearly.
Loved that Joe Perry guitar, by the way.
