I used an HX9V at a fast paced Madonna concert in Hyde Park this week, the pics may help affirm the great image quality that the HX cameras can produce seing as I was 7-8m away from the front triangular stage (prob 30m or so away from the main stage).

The camera was borrowed from my parents, but I am now thinking about selling my NEX-5 kit and buying the HX20V (although I also have the RX100 and LX7 as possibilities too) as I do like to take my photos and videos at gigs.

I have used the NEX at gigs and nightclubs before, and found that open air concerts are fine, albeit limited in zoom using the kit lens, but indoors at a nightclub, it was always slow to focus.
