Default Best Low Light Super Zoom

Concert venues prohibit my D90 but allow P&S cameras. No logic but what is the best super zoom for low light? Fuji's have a larger sensor I ISO top out at 6400 with decent IQ at 3200. Zoom top out at 14.3 but Olympus and Canon are longer. Any advise is appreciated.

clsgman-

Welcome to the Forum. We're glad you dropped by.

I guess we need a little more information regarding what point and shoot cameras are actually allowed into a concert venue. Is it restricted to just compact zoom cameras, or are super zoom like the Canon SX-10/SX-20 and FZ-35/38 permitted?

Have a great day and a Happy Thanksgiving.

Sarah:

Happy thanksgiving to you.
The venues I frequent permit any digicam except DSLRs. They have this prejudice that only DSLRs can give professional images so they ban them.

My old Canon SX110 is 8MP and only 10x. Looking for something longer and finer. Thanks

I'm considering either the Olympus SP-590U, Fuji s100fs or 200EXR, Canon SX10 IS or SX20IS, Panasonic DMC-FZ35.

clgsman-

The fuji F-200EXR has the better ISO capability, but only 5X optical zoom, which may rule it out.The Pansaonic FZ-35 has a much better hugh ISO capability than the Canon SX-10/SX-20. And though, I own an Olympus Sp-590, it is not the greatest when you reach ISO 400 and above.

To me that pretty well points you to the FZ-35.

I have nice 8x10 indoor prints at ISO 1000 taken with Fz35. I also took really good video last night with very low light as well.
