Flashgun?

Hiya, I'm going to be shooting a small gig at a student bar in a few weeks and I was wondering would it be a good idea to purchase a flashgun? I use a Lumix G2 so the flash isn't spectacular but I've always had trouble with photography in dim light.
Any help would be appreciated (:

Re: Flashgun?

Welcome to Pixalo Sbate

Three things spring to mind. Will you be permitted to use a flash in the venue? How far away from the stage will you be? The use of a flash will spoil any lighting effects that have been created so your pictures will loose the ambience of the moment.

I don't recall any of our members who do gig photography using a flashgun TBH - and I don't do this sort of photography myself but these threads might be of use

I think this post might be from one of these threads

Re: Flashgun?

Ahhhh brilliant, thank you!
I will be really close to the stage because it's only a student bar so it's not a massive venue.
I'll think I'll leave the flashgun for now, thanks for your help (:
