I want a budget compact camcorder to film my band playing live gigs.
So I guess the biggest issue is coping with indoor/dark lighting (although the band are lit by lights obv) also "steady cam" stabilization would be a high priority for me.
A external mic jack for my Zoom H1 would be good but not necessary as I can sync up with the film, later
Auto focus too would be a prio
Any advise would be greatly appreciated as I am a camcorder noob
