    Default Best camera for concert photography

    I have been out of the loop for a while for example I still have a canon 20D, yes kind of embarrassing for me to omitted that but I am because I wanted you all to know what I have left from those days. I got by with that then but it was quite a struggle using that and a Minolta 5d to shoot hundreds of concerts back then. And now the technology is so awesome and much better I don't know where to start. I like to do a few more shows once in a while and need a better professional cameras that I don't have to strain to get good photos, Especially in the photo pit we could never use flash and only get three songs to shoot and leave . So any good advice is welcome. I still have tons of canon lens all 2.8 sizes 17mm to 300 mm lenghs thank you

    If the budget will handle it, a Canon 1Dx or 5Diii would be the slamdunk choice. For lessor budgets there are the older 5D models, and the new 6D.

    The cameras that Kelly noted all have full-frame sensors, which are better for low light pics than the APS-C sensor in your 20D and in other less-expensive Canon DSLR's.

    If your budget can't handle one of the full-frame Canons, the APS-C sensor Canons are still very good. They range in price (and quality) from the 7D, 60D, 650D (Rebel T4i), 600D (Rebel T3i) and 1100D (Rebel T3).
