Hi pple,

I'm currently using a EP1 equipped with a m4/3 Pana 45-200mm lens for pop concerts and I muz say its great however recently I realized the staff manning these events are increasingly harrasing folks like us about our cameras.

Hence I'm considering getting a smaller handheld to use as a backup in case one day a over-zealous staff might end up confiscating my camera but am quite clueless what's suitable.

(ya.. I do know the smaller ones are definitely no fight for the DSLR, semi-pros in terms of quality)

Anyone have any recommendations?
I'm currently considering the:
(1) Canon IXUS 1000HS (smallest out of all)
(2) LUMIX DMC-TZ10 (comes with PSAM function but have no idea how much control i get)
(3) Pana DMC-FZ40GC or the LUMIX DMC-FZ35 (actually still quite big in size ..)

as a backup camera as they come with at least a 10x zoom and seem quite decent for casual cameras.

thank U in advance for advice. =)

depends where you are at concert.

try getting camera with F/2 or faster at a decent telephoto range.
