My take? Live and let live. If an individual wishes to film the show, let 'em. That way, those who could not BE at that event (too far to travel, lack of funds, etc) still get to see (bits of) the show and will cost the band, nothing. In fact, I feel chuffed to bits when I get the opportunity to see and hear a few songs from any gig that I had hoped to see, but could not attend. My ONLY argument AGAINST this practice is when said cam/smartphone is blocking someone's view during 30% (or more) of the evening.

From my pov, if a group puts on a killer show, some follow-up Youtube "reel" could earn them an abundance of additional fans. Of course, this is just one bloke's opinion.
