Question low light photography

Please can I get some advice? I have a canon EOS 400D camera, I go to see a lot of live music and need a lens that will help me take well lit pictures with no flash. I can only spend a couple of hundred £ (maybe) but don't know where to start. ANY advice would be great...thank you!

Re: low light photography

Welcome to Pixalo opie8dot

Sadly you are going to be limited on your budget. You need a fast lens in low light and these are expensive. Used lenses could be the answer, but you will probably have to use manual exposure and focus.

Your camera body is also limited as using a high ISO to increase sensitivity will result in noise. More modern bodies are better in this respect.

You might find these posts useful as they deal with gig photography
