Deep Purple Lighting Cameraman Sydney

The weird things we do. Here back stage following Deep Purple out to perform at the Sydney Entertainment Center. While the band was older and certainly with a lead singer looking stiff and arthritic, Smoke on the Water was cool. This was taken with the producer’s mobile. The woman in the foreground is their minder. Oh well, doesn’t matter how old you are, when you’re a rock star you always need a minder to hog the limelight!

While the XDCam PDWF800 offers great low light performance, it too was rendered useless in the dark grime of back stage pathways just as a band moves to walk on stage.
