Concert Gig

What is the best compact camera for taking concert / gig pictures ?

Every picture I have ever taken at gigs is absolute rubbish, which I guess is due to the lighting behind the acts.

I'm looking to buy a new compact camera (ideally £150-£200), does anyone have any recommendations, or tips for taking good quality snaps at gigs ?

Yes - it is the real Human League, they're still touring, and put on a really good show at the recent Godiva Festival in Coventry, playing all the songs we wanted to hear. I'd forgotten just how good Being Boiled was !!

I used a simple Olympia with zoom and it worked fabulously - best pictures I ever took were with that camera. But now I use a FinePix (so I can view the pic and hold more memory before "developing") and the color and quality are fabulous. Don't get anything less than a 3 megapixel - and you don't necessarily need a 5 (unless you want to make a poster of your photo - which: who really wants to do that?)
Get a large memory card...and snap to your heart's content.
