    I was looking at this photograher's page from demark I guess it is and he was shooting a Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds show there, and I was very impressed by the photos. Despite the conditions being very dark, the photos are very crisp and seem to have low noise.

    Here's the site (click on Dave Matthews, Vega): http://www.rosenauer.dk/#

    I just dont understand how that's done, was it just edited very carefully or what? Maybe it's actually not that big a deal or something (I dont shoot digital), but it seems like there should be way more noise for those conditions.

    It just depends on the exposure... if you have a very fast lens, say around 1.8 you can get good shots with available light and little noise.

    These concerts have tremendous amounts of light. With a fast lens and the right exposure you'll get very little noise.

    Here's a couple of mine taken in a crowd of Duran Duran fans with the 85f1.8 at ISO 800. No noise reduction in either. I have lots of images - sneaked in my 20D!!! Lack of noise is one of the reasons many have switched from film to digital.
