On Wednesday night, yes a school night I know, I popped down to the Forum in Tunbridge Wells to go see a band called Vukovi who I had recently ‘discovered’ with my shiney new Canon Eos M5 in hand. Vukovi had support from two other bands, Inklings and Press to MECO. All three bands were great in their own way and it proved to be another night of great music at The Forum, and considering that it was mid week, there was a pretty good turn out too.
I had decided to give my new Canon EOS M5 its first real low light test and I am pleased to report back that I was pretty happy with the results, When up close to the stage I used the kit lens, 15-45mm 3.5-6.3 IS STM and it performed really well (I did have my doubts). I pushed the ISO pretty hard on some of the shots and the noise, although present, was really not too bad at all.
So that’s it, next time I go out to a gig, no more lugging around my trusty full frame, its mirrorless all the way!
