This might have been asked in another thread but I can’t find it. If I have to do a stealth recording, how long does VH play? Is there a good spot to split 2 90 min tapes? Or will the entire show fit on a 2 hour tape?

What is this “tape” you speak of?

omahaswine: how long does VH play?

The two shows shared so far have been 2:01 and 1:59 – so a 2 hour “tape” would be cutting it very close.

But there are several piss-break songs throughout the set, like Drop Dead Legs, In A Simple Rhyme, Dirty Movies, etc., so you’ll have several points in the show to flip your TDK SA-90s :wink:

I think someone else suggested taking a break right before Dave’s Ice Cream Man solo. He takes a minute or two to set up, apparently, before he starts his speech.

In the Concord recording, that “break” is 45-50 seconds between the end of Dirty Movies and the start of Dave’s strumming, which is around the 80 minute mark of the show.

I think I’ll just do it during the drum solo like in 2004 (assuming I go). After watching that Chicago 2012 show this morning I’m not so sure. Dave was horrible but the band and background vocals sounded great. I might have to drive 6 hours to get Sammy.

I have about 10 of them. They are discontinued so I stocked up.

I know that when it comes to cameras at concerts, anything with a detachable lens by a non-professional is prohibited. And, camera policies vary from venue to venue. But, I saw this camera and I’m considering buying it for the Red Rocks show due to the zoom feature:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/other_powershot/powershot_sx400_is

It looks like the lens is detachable, but it isn’t, and though it looks like it’s as large as some of the ones used the pros at the foot of the stage, it’s actually fairly small. Has anyone who’s attended the last few shows seen anything similar to this in use by concertgoers? If so, were they hassled by security?

And, I’m torn between the one above, and this one here:

Thanks.

This is what I used for still photos on the first night in Seattle (Auburn). http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/stylus-1.html

Vince – that Canon only shoots video at 720p. If you never plan on using it for video, I’m sure you’re OK. But if you’re going to shoot video, you definitely want something that can shoot full HD. And you might even consider something that can shoot 4K HD.

FWIW, I’ve been hassled at shows for shooting with a camera that looks like it has a detachable lens, even though it isn’t. If you’re worried about the Canon appearing to be too “pro-looking”, then go with the Nikon.
