#1: takin pic w/o flash, please make sure you are in a well-lit (sunlight lit is best) area. please make sure focus is not moving, and camera is not moving. when green box appears, please be very still to get clear pic. i donot use flash, flash does exactly wat u say. so i use "scene" w/o flash.
No flash, right? Concert pix are some of the hardest to do. 80% recovery is pretty good.
Don't use a speed slower than 60 (1/60th second).
try us use telephoto as much as possible, leaving the dark areas out of the picture. The camera metering gets confused when you have too much audience and other areas that are not lit up like the stage.

E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.
Hey Osfan, I will start by saying concert photographs are some of the hardest images to capture successfully. The first thing you probably should do is set the iso to the highest setting possible which on this camera is iso 800. Since it sounds like you want to stop the action I would have the camera set to shutter priority mode or manual mode so you can control the shutter speed yourself. I would have the flash on at all times, and with this camera at iso 800 the flash should cover subjects 27.9 feet away at the wide-angle setting to 18.7 feet away at the most telephoto setting. I hope my suggestions help! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
Hey Alymac, Digital still cameras are not designed to record high quality audio. The mic used to record the audio is probably OK for normal audio situations, but not for difficult recording situations like concerts. To get a good quality video that has good quality audio I would invest in a high quality digital camcorder. What your camera was picking up is all the atmospheric noise that is going on around you. You probably didn't notice it because a concert is usually a loud environment. To get a good quality recording of a concert you would need a mic that focuses where it picks up its audio from instead of from all sounds surrounding you. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
