What camera is good for concert photography?

Episode 897 (2:11:49)

Barbara from Little Rock, AR

Taking photos and videos at a concert can be a challenge because of the harsh contrast lighting conditions. Distance will also be an issue. Ideally, she'd want a telephoto lens and a tripod. A DSLR with a nice big CMOS chip is a good option.

Leo recommends the Nikon D3200. It's around $700, but it has a huge APS-C Sensor and the ability to put an external microphone on it.

A micro 4/3s camera like the SONY NEX-5 is another option.
