    Well to answer my own question, that's a resounding no. In my opinion the XF405 sensor isn't up to scratch for a low light shoot like a concert.

    It's a surprisingly fun little camera for good light doco work. It's never going to rival the IQ or ergonomics of a `C`class camera but on a budget it doesn't do too badly.

    However get the gain up past the mid teens - around 21db in my case out of necessity - and it all goes muddy and noisy fast. So yes, it scraped through but no, I won't be hiring one again for a night interior shoot.

    There just to be such an elegant solutions to expose the scene correctly, here is an excerpt from my Yashica manual:



    "...a lamp symbol will appear in the Exposure Window and recommend the use of movie-light. "
