This one's the newest, as I just posted it last night. From the Dallas Auto Show:

Another from the Auto Show. I just set the camera to AUTO, composed and shot for a few frames justto see how it'd work:

That should be coming, once I get into Texas Stadium with this thing...couldn't get in with my Digital SLR. This little megazoom shouldre-open doors to some venues for me that have been closed for a while.

does this mean you can only get in with a camera if you hide it so security doesn't see it?

I don't know about Texas Stadium but at Key Arena (NBA Sonics' home), you can take in cameras that don't look professional. That usually eliminates DSLR's and the larger "bridge cameras" like the Fuji S9100 and S6000fd. I could take in a smaller Fuji S5200 with no problem and was able to take some decent shots with it.

No, not at all. If you have a DSLR, you're pretty much outta luck. I've recently purchased a 1.7 teleconverter lens for my SP550, but probably would not try to get that in either, but point & shoot, non-detachable lens cameras are pretty much OK as long as the lens doesn't extend too far. One of the reasons why I didn't consider a Panasonic FZ50 more than I did was because I felt like stadium security would see it as too close to a DSLR to get by too.
