Re: Overall best digital compact for concert photography

Do NOT shoot flash.  They'l dislike you.

Use any iso you need to.  It's that, or zip.

Shoot wide open.

Depending on the movement spd of the performer...anywhere from 1/80 and up to 1/200 should do it.

Often best shots are when underexposed by about 2/3 stop in concert light...and beware of rapidly changing lights...of bright lights behind the singer...and expose for the face.  When you chimp the shots...since it's dark in there, they will look brighter than they actually are later on computer.
