    I am new to this site and this is my first time posting. I have a Kodak EasyShare Z612. I need help in determing the best settings for taking pictures during a concert. Which means low light and lots of movement. I need a small shutter lag, which I have, and a quick time to take my next shot. I am just not sure as to which shutter speed is best or aperture speed, etc.
    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum, Mindy,
    Try the following settings: ISO 800 (which is the max on this camera, I believe), Aperture Priority shooting mode, maximum aperture setting (which means the lowest number possible number, should be in the 4.x range at full zoom), flash disabled, and possibly Tungsten white balance depending on how "warm" the stage lighting is. This should be your optimal setup for concert shooting.

    Hope this helps,
    dr

    Also, the more you are able to zoom out, the faster the shutter speed, and possibly (depending on lighting) the better the pictures will be. However, I do understand the desire to zoom in as much as possible.
