I have a Canon Power Shot S3 IS. I take boring photographs and most are noisy and blurry.
So I wanted to ask Anyone's Advice on what 'BEST' Camera 'FILTERS' I can buy to filter out noise (when I take photo's from far away and at Concerts!) And one that would take "Professional" takes.
Thanks so much!
Generally there is not a lot of light at concerts requiring higher ISO which causes more noise. The slow shutter speed resulting from low light plus zooming in makes it even harder to hold the camera steady enough to get a sharp picture.
If you want to take professional looking pictures at concerts than you will need a SLR and a fast lens. I have a Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 zoom that I use for things like this. When photography isn't allowed and I have to sneak a camera in I have to downsize to gear that I can fit into pockets of my coat (the big Nikkor lens is NOT easily concealed!) . I have a Series E 75-150 f/3.5 zoom that is small enough to fit into a coat pocket but still reasonably fast.
You should have something to steady your camera. Most venues don't allow tripods but you might be able to use a monopod; a monopod can help a great deal. Another trick I use when I can't bring a monopod is to use a small tripod like the kind used on tables then adjust it so it sits against my chest.
Uhh those cameras are not so easy to use and get good shots with them if you don't know those kind of cameras. So if someone doesn't know anything at all about those camera and just want to take lots of pictures for fun fast just a normal digital camera would be best. cause those cameras is to take more professional looking pictures. Could be too that you need to buy a better lense. but honestly you need to ask someone that knows how to use those cameras to teach you personally cause it's not easy for on internet.
