Hi, I'm asking for some idea's on a camera to purchase as one of a few, as i'm going to be apart of some video recording for bands.

Basically Im looking for a decent camera to shoot from the front of the stage, it will be used to pan around, and will all be at one level mostly.
I'm open to anything right now, preferably hard-drive based though, if not, a card format.
Used or new let's say no more than 700/800.

Forgive me for my basic knowledge in terms of video camera's (Im more of a DLSR man), but any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ben
