1. No flash IN THE BIG TOP. If you’ve ever been, you know what I’m talking about.

3. You can see the face of each band member, including the drummer. No small thing.

    I like it! It looks like a lost segment of American Bandstand.

    Looks like the Ed Sullivan Show! Good “1960’s” quality there.

    So, is it the lens that gets you these brighter images or a setting on your camera, like a night mode??

    The first one works. It really captures the feel of, as some have already pointed out, American Bandstand.
