In the last year I was lucky enough to see quite a few live gigs and capture some memorable moments with my trusty Canon G9 camera. It's not the best camera in the world, but it's got a 6x zoom lens, works well in low light and has decent video capture. Best of all, it fits in a jacket pocket and costs less than $450.
I managed to get some decent photos and videos at shows by Lenny Kravitz, The Smithereens, Alan Iglesias, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Pat "Jazz Butcher" Fish, Andy Walo and more. Here's some my favorite photos from the past year as posted on PicasaWeb.
I've also put a couple of the best videos I shot on YouTube below. I hope to get out to more gigs in the coming months and shoot even more photos and videos.
