I have a twofold need for a video camera;

1) I am engaging in political protests/campaigns/courthouse events where I would like to be able to wear a camera or selfie stick or something and to be able to hand out flyers/record feedback /surroundings

2) I need to be able to track high quality sound of these events for clarity if possible for the upload

3) I need to be able to upload the feed and have enough diskspace for say 20 minutes or so recording time,,,and to be able to readily EDIT the feed after uploading it to the desktop, so that I can upload to...wherever!

4) MORE IMportantly than the political/legal climate capture events is my WORK; MUSIC

5) I need to have HIGH quality live audio capture that I could catch whilst FILMING AND RECORDING Live performances on another unit (as to audio)i.e. I would use primarily the video, but would enhance the LIVE audio feed, of a good quality, with the recording feed of a analog system, possibly for live streaming or for uploading to the net

6) need to be able to easily EDIT the music video/audio'

From one anarchist to another. Cool I suggest you invest in two items:-
First a Go-Pro type camera, there are plenty on the market cheaper than GP, and clip it to your chest or head. I use a Denver ACT-5030W (cheaper than a Go-Pro for when the police nab it. Sad )
Second a pocket recorder such as a Zoom with a lapel mic. The Zoom recorders record in high quality so would also work for your music. It will also supply electricity to run an electret condenser mic.
These type of units will give you files on SD cards which you can then combine in a video editor. I use Corel's VideoStudio Pro X9 but most suppliers allow a 30 day free trial of their editors.
Recording protests and gigs really require two different types of camera and the GP type would be virtually useless for concert work due to its wide angle lens and poor low light performance. Likewise a conventional camcorder would not be ideal in a public rough and tumble situation because of its bulk.
You will also be aware that recording in certain public situations is disliked by the establishment. A camera in a court would probably be interpreted as contempt.

Hope this has helped.
