I would hold my camera very high up by straightening my hand and frame thru the LCD.


Not sure how DSLR user would do it though....

Well, not everyone has the time nor the inclination to be at the front.And not everyone at an event is a "pro" photographer, they're just there to enjoy the show and snap some pics as a form of memory.

Just lay them off yeah.. :)

Hi FC_Photographer ... so sorry ... I blocked you ... oops. :dunno: just trying to be funny in the middle of the night. :p Hope you don't mind. :bsmilie:

BTW. Either hold your cam high up and keep releasing the shutter and hoping you get something decent (this is when the D2H become very very handy), or try to find a way to the front (maybe show people the D2H might open up a path to the front). :bsmilie: If D2H helps, i am very sure D2X, 1D Mark II, and 1Ds Mark II works too! :bsmilie: (heng .... last min remember the other 3 cams, if not gana flame).

Use a monopod with a spiked foot. When someone gets in your way, tilt the monopod and poke the bugger's leg with your monopod.. When the person turns around, just say: "Sorry, could you please move a little".. LOL.. Eventually they'd get the idea..

bringing a D2h, D2x or any pro bodies there is a stupid move. why... its a total waste of flim or shutter releases to me. coz replacing spare parts for them is so expensive.

even bring a D70 i would say is a overkill for such a event. let alone a D2h.

and if it is damaged, whos going to answer ?? and the worse part is, u are covering the event on ur own pockets, not the pple pay u, and if the equipment is damaged, u pay frm ur own pocket. sometimes even if i go and shoot for fun, the most i bring my f-717. haha... tats simple... shutter spoil change lor... dun feel pain

but if my D2h need to change shutter, its $400-500+ and plus other servicings. so how ?

Aiya...if its the fans that do it even if they using camera phone,cannot blame them.For them,even if the photo is not clear doesn't matter b'cos their 'perception' will help them sharpen the images."A more powerful tool than photoshop".Then for those who hold a decent digital camera,went early and got a decent spot.Then its really true that 'early bird catches the worm'.For others that took out their cam or phone and try to take after failing so many time are really trouble makers.These I'm referring to those that not interested in the singers but just want to join in the crowd.Doing for the sake of doing it."If a blind bird tries to catch a bird,not only it will end up catching none...in the process also bang into other birds".
