Which camera for concert?
6 months ago

I'm going to see Queensryche at Snoqualmie Casino Ballroom (near Seattle) tonight and it should be a lot of fun. I want to take my LX7 because it would be much better than my next camera choice, an FP8 ultra compact. But I'm really hesitant to take my LX7 into that environment plus I'm wondering if it wouldn't be allowed because it looks like a pretty serious camera. The little FP8 is much inferior for this kind of shooting but it is way more convenient to carry and take into places like this. So I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands. I was pretty sure I was just going to take the FP8, at first, but I have never been to this casino and when I saw some pictures online I begin leaning back towards the LX7.

This is a personal decision for sure but I could use a few opinions from some of you that have made similar choices. Was there any issues taking an LX7 or similar camera into a concert and were you worried about it getting damaged? This venue allows for standing only, I think, and it might get a little crazy. I certainly don't want to spend the whole time taking pictures but the pics I do take I want to be happy with. Thanks.
