I asked him and I think you know his reaction. Good luck in your search but for now it seems folk set it up and use the usual gear and mixers.
I am a concert promoter and I am looking for a HD video camera that will record good quality sound even when the volume is 120 decibels or more. I don't want to use an external mic. I just want a camcorder that will automatically adjust the volume so when I play it back the sound comes out clean and crisp and not distorted from all the bass and high volume of a concert.
Is there anything out there that will guarantee this and I am not worried about cost but under a grand would be nice. I would also like the video to be high quality as well but the sound quality is more important to me.
