Best pocket camcorder for low lighting/garbage sound conditions?
posted by SassHat to shopping (3 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
I'm looking for a pocket camcorder to record some of my comedy shows, and while I'm reading reviews I was hoping for some specific recommendations based on the show environment.
I would need something that could handle occasional low lighting and bright stage lights, with a reasonably good internal mic (or external mic capability w/recs) to get crisp (or at least not "muffled") audio. For my purposes, I want to be able to record sets and if the quality is nice enough, possibly upload clips for promotional purposes. It would also be great to have something with standard tripod threading or the ability to stand up on its own.
Am I asking too much? I am not really willing to invest a lot of money in gear that will mostly be used for my own review, so fancy camcorders probably aren't an option.
