Hi everyone,

Thinking way ahead for a future concert (probably a year away) - probably wouldn't get away with bringing my DSLR stuff to a concert, so thinking of getting a digital compact.  What I'd want in such a camera?

Fast minimum aperture

How fast? f:2.8 ...

zoom out to 200, maybe 250mm

Is that real focal length or FF equivalent?

great high ISO performance

1600...3200...6400 .......

good AF performance

Accuracy or speed?

don't want to spend a total fortune as this would only be used for concert photography from time to time - ordinary photography would be my usual Canon DSLR kit

Put a price on it. One man's fortune is another man's pocket money.

Does such a beast exist (I'm doubtful) and what would your suggestions be?


Look at the Canon G15 or the Fuji X20 and say where they don't fit your ideas.

Every photograph is an abstraction from reality.
