    Hi, I have and love my little DSC-H9V Sony compact, but have struggled to find a good setting for gig/concert photography. At a lot of gigs they will not allow DSLR cameras, so it would be nice to get the compact set up for this. Any help will be most welcome.

    Hi Julie. It depends on what you think you can get away with at a gig! And also how much you want to spend.

    Something like an Olympus E-PM2 fitted with an Olympus 40-150mm lens will provide better quality. You can see the sort of deals there are around here.

    If you want a one-lens solution you can get the E-PM2 body with a 14-150mm lens. This will cost more but there is a good deal going on that lens at the moment - I've recently bought one. The deal will probably not last long, though.

    Thanks for the reply, however I am NOT looking to replace my Sony compact, but merely find the ideal setting changes to make on it to use at gigs. I was hoping other owners may have played around with the same camera for this type of usage.

    I just need good settings for my SONY DSC-HX9V. I know its not the best camera for gigs....but it is what I have at this time ! Smile

    Masny thanks

    What settings do you use at present - and what problems are you finding?

    With a small sensor compact, you could find there are no 'ideal' settings because it is not an ideal camera. Smile
