A few things working against you.

1. Stage lighting which is designed for effect and not photography. Usually much lower in intensity than sunlight.

2. Moving subject in lowlight.

3. Slow maximum aperture lens.

Why not go with the Nikon D3000 and a kit lens that your cousin has? There is no reason to stick to one brand.

Whoa. .. So many posts and comments..Thank you everyone. Thank you for your comments, suggestions, pointers and opinion. I get that I should have used faster shutter speed. But I guess I was restricted by the f3.6 kit lens. Seems like I should practice more and read up more. Thanks again everyone.

Regards chikkad

I'd recommend checking out this site - http://canonoutsideofa​uto.ca/ (external link) - and start learning the exposure triangle (Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO). They have a learning section along with a simulator (click "Play") that will let you play with each setting see how it effects your picture. You'll be outside of auto in no time and utilizing your 7D as it was meant to be.

Wrong. Its an "old" camera but it still the top crop camera in the market today....sorry to bust your bubbble. Its ISO low light capability is more than good. Guess you just completely ignore the work of TeamSpeed at low light settings.....:rolleyes:

Late to this thread and it only took a few seconds to see motion blur where people are moving their arms. SS too slow.

7D @ ISO 12,800. It was dark and I was maxed out with an f4 lens at 1/500. At that speed you can see slight motion blur on feet and hands. The key to the 7D is correct exposure or even slightly to the right. It is a light hungry sensor and if get good exposure you can get decent higher ISO shots. Noise Reduction using ACR.

Thats an excellent example of the 7d capabilities, according to some people you just got lucky, caught perfect light among some other rather absurd theories....:D

So you're complaining about the camera because you don't know anything about photography? Makes sense.......

I believe the OP used the term frustrated. I'm certain he would have been equally frustrated whatever camera he used.

He had the sense in post quite a few images to be assessed to aid in his learning process. Hopefully he'll see the limit of his equipment and skils , then learn from there.

Within his friendly learning community, how about cutting the OP some slack.

Exactly. Combine hostile elitist kill joys with post after post of "Nice shot!", and a photo forum can quickly die off because no one wants to actually bother engaging in discussions there.

The OP appeared to be expressing some frustration at his results - especially when compared to someone else with a camera from a different manufacturer. But they clearly didn't blame the equipment. After all the details of what the perceived problem was, the question asked was "Am I missing something?", which is obviously the case. So people answered, the OP learned some things, and all is well...until someone comes along and says something like this....

Heh! I'd say the OP got some very good responses! The fact that one person (who hasn't been very active here) made an un-thoughtful comment, well, let's not let "one bad apple spoil the bunch", and let's not waste energy on it!:)

Frustrated EOS 7D

Thanks to all those who posted your suggestions on how to improve shooting with my EOS 7D and EF 18-135/f3.6 - 6.3 kit lens. I tried out some shots on my vacation to
Vegas. All shots were in Manual Mode.
