    Default Filming live music, Whats best?

    Can anyone help?
    I'm looking to buy a camcorder and mic set up for filming live music mainly for posting on the internet.
    I've got a budget of 500-700 pounds but no idea what my money would be best spent on.

    The Sony HandyCam HDR HC7 should fit with your need. Look at the reviews .

    Get a senheisser shotgun mic. It has 360 degree sound and will pick up extremely well.
    For a sound system, you COULD use the mic jack system on your given camcorder OR you could use an external recording device (the external recording device is better).
    Imagination and discipline are like yin and yang; both are completely different and yet without each other they are nothing.

    Regardless of which mic you buy just make sure you buy a Mini DV camcorder, don't be tempted to purchase a Mini DVD or Hard Disk camcorder.
