I had the pleasure to do some promotional photography for a newly formed 18 piece band last month. LUX were performing at "Under the Bridge" in Fulham and put on an incredibly energetic and entertaining show. I definitely used all the ISO capability that the Canon 1Dx Mk II affords given the low light underground conditions.
