Thank you for this video..
I want to ask,, I have canon eos 650d with the kit lense.. I want to shoot photo during a concert .. what would you recommend regarding focus, zoom, (lense or a mirrorless camera so I rent it)
Is auto focus better?
Note : I'll be between the audience so I'm not sure about the distance 😁
Sorry it's too long .. thanks

This is such an informative video! I ended up getting the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens from afterwards. It was a perfect option for some crazy wide angle shots. Loved it!

Gantsilyo Baguio Yarns says:

Hi Sean, thank for your helpful vids. I'm fairly new to DSLR and I'd just like to know what lens to use for shooting pictures on the stage if you're at the back of an auditorium. I watched this vid but I still don't know what lens to buy. I have a Canon EOS 3000D. Thanks for any reply.

HanFei says:

At the moment I am using a 18-55 kit lens on a Canon 80D but there is a lot of distortion…I think it is because the lighting isn't too good…I am really happy that I heard about the 24 mm lens it is not too expensive and I think it will work for me! Thank you so much! Your videos help me a lot and also inspires to push through wen sometimes I feel like quitting! Thank you!
