Arrow Would A Single-Use Camera With A Flash Be Any Good At Taking Snaps At A Concert?

...Title Says It All, I Just Need To Know For Thursday, As I'm Going To See Gwen Stefani And Want To Take Piccies!

But Would It Be To Weak, I Know Gwen's Performances Will Be Well-Lit With SFX And Strobes, But Would It Still Be Any Good?

Oh! And Before You Post, No, I Don't Want A Digital Camera...Yet

Thanks For Reading And (Hopefully) Helping

No. Those cameras have very shallow depth of field, and the flash won't be bright enough if you are far back.

And most concerts have rules against photography and filming, so I would check ahead of time.

There's nothing against trying. I just know from experience you might be dissapointed when you get the prints back. To photograph a concert I would use nothing less than a SLR with a strobe.

Single Lens Reflex. It's an advanced, fully manual/automatic camera. Basically what professionals and serious amateurs use.

Pardon me for the jargon, but SLR stands for Single Lens Reflex camera.
