As I'm sure most of you are aware, you are unlikely to get into a live concert with a DSLR, so I am looking for a good small point and shoot camera to take to gigs. I bought a Canon SX730 HS for this purpose about six weeks ago and it really has disappointed. Images are super grainy, even at 800 ISO and underexposing with a view to attempt to bring it back in Lightroom, the shots are disappointing as the camera does not shoot RAW. It also has a real hard time focusing when zoomed in by 50% or more, it will often take half dozen attempts to focus, even more focusing attempts are required when the lighting is fast changing.
I was looking at the Sony RX100 V as it has a larger 1" sensor and a popup EVF, which will help with stability of shots.
Would this be a good choice, or are there other recommendations you might have?
