As indicated in the description, the author used more of D950 than D699 because D699 already circulates in sound upgraded form ( Although D699 is a less-obstructed balcony shot, D950 is shot from the floor and gives one the feeling of being amongst the crowd; literally, because the filmer struggles to keep the camera steady and centered on Dylan. Thus, there aren't many shots of the individual band members, but there are excellent close-ups of Dylan, who delivered a very strong performance with a cool setlist.
