Default P & S with tilt screen?

Does one exist? My friend is going to a concert next May, the camera she currently has is on its last legs so I have told her to get a new one now so she has a couple of months to learn to use it. She could do with a P & S with a tilt screen as she will most likely be taking photos over her head. She would also like 10x zoom. A super zoom is no good as in the UK they are treated as pro cameras and are not allowed into concerts.

Any suggestions appreciated.


Olympus E420, 17.5-45mm, 14-42mm, 40-150mm, 70-300mm and 25mm lens

You're going to have to sacrifice either zoom or tilt lcd since by your own admission superzoom cameras are not allowed into concerts. That rules out the bridge superzooms like SX30 IS, SX20 IS, FZ35, FZ40, FZ100 etc.

So with that in mind if tilt screen is important and you can live with 5x zoom G11 or 12 as suggested above (which is really good for low light images) or if she would like a compact superzoom with non tilt then the TZ10/ZS7 which has 12x zoom and good video recording ability.
