Cybershot T-series

Hello there..

I am in search of a little input on a few cameras that I have used recently. First of all, I am looking for a camera to take to live music concerts. What I have been after really is a camera that has audio that can filter enough of the bass out so that it has actually good audio and not just muddy with bass. A friend owns the Sony T300 and has great success with his audio and has really good videos. I had a Nikon that I had been using for a while, and it worked pretty well...but I ended up breaking the screen and had to get another one. I decided to go with the Sony T500 because I figured it would have as good or better audio as my friends camera, plus it has a widescreen mode to shoot video in that I also liked. Ended up not to be as good as the T300 that my friend has. I was bummed. I should say that before I bought the T500, I bought the T77 which took very good video and had very good audio as well. I guess what I am after is some input on the T500 and its ability in loud situations, and if I may have gotten a bad seed. If I have to, I will go back to the T77 because I know it works for what I want it to..but I do like the widescreen options that the 500 has. Thanks for reading.

You should be looking at camcorders instead of digital cameras.

Digital cameras treat video/audio as an afterthought.

They give little thought to the quality of the microphone or the sound circuits. They also place the microphone where it is convenient, not where it is best.

Here is a link to the Camcorders Forum:;f06-fd

I appreciate your suggestion, but I already have a camcorder. The reason I want a camera that takes good video as mainly because of the size factor. I need to be able to conceal it easily and not get it detected when I go into the concert. When they allow video taping..I take my camcorder..but most of the time, they do not allow any taping or photography..

Sony's T series are good cameras depending on their features. So far my T-90 working pretty well besides it's my dad's birthday gift for me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
