Re: what makes a professional camera to concert security?

I would say there is a good chance you'll get it in, although you may want to ditch the case before hand and take it in a more modest case or just in a non-photo bag.

They don't have lists of cameras and models - they just seem to operate on a rather vague size criterion - if it looks big, don't let it in. I think a GF1 + 20mm should be OK but you might not get a GF1 in with a 14-45 on it.

But wouldn't you be better with a compact that has a longer lens? With 40mm 35mm focal length equivalent you won't get decent shots of performers unless you are very close to the stage?
