Few weeks before the event, TGS Academy (partner) invited me for collaboration shooting for Mad August concert that was going to rock at 30th August, right before Malaysia Independence Day. The event was organised by [August Music] and [FM 988] as solely Radio Sponsor. Frankly, I was quite exciting about my first official concert shooting.
I had decided to purchase one more lens. Me as Sony and Fuji mirror shooter, I lack of one telephoto zoom, especially for the concert. My struggling was which brand of 70-200mm zoom to take. The options only between [Sony FE 70-200 G F4] or [GM F2.8] or [Fuji 50-140mm F2.8]? After many days of struggling, in short, I ended up taking Fuji’s version. My determination was the size, weight and mobility. Of course the price too. Many says it is not full frame and the price not worth it. Well, yes it is just an APS-C sensor. Considering it offer 5.5 stops of image stabilization compensation it is phenomenal and outstanding. The optic quality is great and most important it is made in Japan while the G Master is Thailand and the price is significant higher.
For this shooting, I took my Sony A7rii and Fuji X-T3 along. For lenses I took Tamron 28-75mm F2.8, FE 55mm F1.8, FE 85mm F1.8, Fuji 50-140mm F1.8. Fuji was used for telephoto with faster motion that fixed on tripod, while Sony was used for on mobile depend on the situation and distant and keep changing lenses when needed.
It is all about the concert and performance. Can refer to http://www.988.com.my/concert/190630-madaugust-fighter-concert/ for the detail of the concert. Honestly, It is not easy for local band in Malaysia. Mad August is working so hard and their performance are very promising. They are very good band and great singer.
Apparently the band name called “Mad August”, consist of 4 members include vocalist – Peter, guitarist – Jim, bassist – Jeff and drummer – Kit. They are Malaysia local that founded 24 August 2011. Their genre is modern rock. More of their details can be found on their Social Media like Facebook.
