I actually meant if it has done 9,000, then unless you are taking 100's per day every day, then you've still got loads of life left in it, even at the bottom of the range 50-100k.

Okay good to know. Cams going to be here before Saturday which is good as i've been asked to take pictures (and now videos) of and event that's on Saturday.

Also my pictures from the event last Saturday have been used for the events review article a friend has been doing, they credited me at the bottom of each of my images and at the bottom of the page alongside my instagram webpage link.

I use Lightroom to get rid of some of the grain due to high ISO sometimes (never 100% thou as over-wise it looks to smoothed out) and i also remove purple fringing if i see any.

I then fix the exposure if needed to and then warm up the image if it came out to cold/grey/washed out.

I realise that I'm late to the party, but as 13thmonkey suggested, why don't you consider buying a flashgun and reflector? Something that attaches to the flash like a Rogue Flashbender for example? Seems the best option to me.

Interesting article I came across today, regarding this exact issue:

I Got Tired Of People Giving My Camera The Credit For My Photos, So I Bought The Cheapest Camera And Lens I Could Find To Prove Them Wrong
https://www.boredpanda.com/professional-pictures-cheap-camera-phillip-haumesser/

Ignore the sales pitch, and look at the pics.

Yes i understand that, my 450D would do amazing with that amount of light. But what i need is a camera that can handle fast action at event in low light I'm still gonna keep using my 450D in rugged locations as its a cheap cam i can scrape & damage a bit.

Anyway the 650D cam has been delivered gonna take it with me to the O2 Ritz in Manchester tonight as fellow photography buddy needs a wingman to do some extra footage with him. Also he recommended i had a go with his 70D & 6D at some point in the night which will be cool to try out.

Me at the O2 Ritz doing photography.... gonna be amazing
