New Camera

I'm getting a new camera soon, the Fuji Finepix S5600. Sure it's not gonna give a pro wet dreams like the Nikon D200, but it's alot better than my cameraphone and Minolta 3.2MP combo I've got going on!
So that's why there's no new pics from The Eels or The Who - after trying out a few decent camera's they just look too pitiful!

Picture Slideshow

I'll be off to The Eels in a bit. Until then, I've added this so you don't have to visit Flickr to see my old pics ;).

Wahey they're here!

Just woke up, and now I'm happy for the rest of the day :D.

This is me

This is me, unvoluntarily (found it on my camera after Depeche Mode!).
I don't wanna see no comments about the Smirnoff Ice btw - they'd run out of beer!

Links in posts

By the way, I can get abit obsessive about linking to everything I'm talking about. Only if it's relevant of course, and to stop me from writing even more than I already do, but the only problem is they'll take you away from the blog every time you click them if you just click.
Most of you already know this, but for anyone that doesn't, if you right click a hyperlink and press the second option down it'll open it in a new window (or a new tab if you're a Firefox user).

Hope that helps :).

Recent Gigs

I've been to some pretty amazing gigs lately; Depeche Mode, Tool, Guns 'N' Roses, The Foo Fighters, Motorhead, Stained Glass Heroes, The Eels, Mesh... sorry if I've missed anyone out.
And June's not even over yet.
Not that I've been impressed with all my gigs this month - The Futureheads, and The Editors too, for me, really bombed!
Well June'll be over in a few days, so I'm going to head down to The Eels again on Weds - I spent Friday trying to look over people walking past to get to the bar (and I'm 6.2"!), and it was a brilliant show.
I'm not going to repost those pictures here though, I've already duplicated them posting on DSI and Flickr, and besides, they were taken on my cameraphone (except Depeche Mode anyway).
Go check them out now! and leave me some comments :).

My first post

This is my first post on my new Blog, Point and Shoot. Hi, I'm Duncan, and you can check me out here.
I never intended to have a blog, I mean, blog's are just for sad, lonely people, right?
Well I've got my reasons. I spend way too much time (and money) going to support bands, go clubbing, or helping promote music events around London.
Lately, I've started snapping loads of pictures on my new Nokia N70 cameraphone, but I completely symphasize with professional photographers who see this is as a bit ridiculous - the low light conditions combined with movement of the crowd, bright flashing lights and fast moving targets mean the photos (or videos) never come out great.
Still, I quite like some of my pictures, and you can find them on my Flickr account (aswell as a few videos over on YouTube).
So I'm going to buy a semi-decent camera, probably the Fuji S5600; it's low-light performance and high quality CCD (aswell as very competitive price on eBay) are what made me chose it, although I have read that it can't use even Optical Zoom whilst shooting video, for some bizarre reason, and I'm hoping that's not true.
So why switch from Flickr and YouTube to a blog format anyway? Well look at how much more I can do with this (in collaboration with Hello.com), do you even need to ask that question?
If you want to know where I'll be covering next, just take a look at my DSI profile, and if you're looking for someone to cover your next gig or clubnight in London (or know someone that is) you can contact me through MySpace.
