I take a lot of photos at jazz clubs. As you know they are typically low light. If you were going to buy a camera to take the best possible picture in this venue which one would you suggest?

The pictures need to be as clean as possible.



Thanks

Best low light digital camera will always be a dSLR. But if that is too big for you and you want a small PnS, check out Fuji, they have one of the best sensor for low light. A lot of people phrase the Fuji F10. The new version of that should be out the Fuji F11 with a higher ISO, I think it tops out at 3200. I heard the new F11 at 3200 ISO is equal to the older F10 at 1600 ISO in terms of performance.

The Fuji F-30, slated to be introduced next month, in May will be able to use ISO 3200, which would be ideal for low light level shooting environments. The design will be similiar to the F-10 size, but the F-30 will feature rounded corners and more manual controls like the current F-11. It will have both aperture and shutter priority.
