Being my first opportunity to work with a digital SLR during a concert, there were some pleasant surprises to be had. First was the advantage that sheer volume lent to the process - in the past when I have photographed a concert, I might have used 3 rolls of 36 exposure film - for this concert I made almost 10x that many images and edited afterward. Also, the sensitivity of the digital sensor worked in my favour - most digital sensors have extreme sensitivities to red (one of the reasons why, when modified, digital cameras work so well as infra-red cameras). With film, reds are often an issue, as it is the slowest wavelength in the spectrum but, for digital, red proved just the opposite - too bright if anything. A pleasant surprise.
