For great audio, I use audio recorders.

But I wonder if they allow such things like the Sanyo ICR-XPS01M or Tascom DR-40's in the gate. As to videos, it's likely no one will allow camcorders or DSLRs so why not the usual iPhone?

PS. Just FYI, I can't explain why this question comes up so often. You would think folk would figure it out.

I don't know what to buy and don't want to buy crap ???
by metaldude2014 / October 21, 2014 8:24 AM PDT

Did you see the "video" exemple that I put in my post ?
for me that's great quality.
I want that kind of quality
I mean HD Video Image and of course the nost difficult of them all: Great quality Audio
I don't how they get that kind of great audio in those video exemple that I post up here
But I want that kind of great Audio quality
thanks for these exemple of camera, i'll check them out !!!!!!!!!
But if you have other ideas feel free to share
Because I don't know what to buy ? Specialy because of the "Great Audio quality"
That audio quality that i'm serching is hard to find on a good camera or phone ?
but the HD video Image 1080 or more is easy to find.
If the video has that great 1080 video image HD but A ****** sound nobody will Watch even me.
Like I said I don't know what to buy ?????
What model or brand ... ,
So even if it's a phone: Should I buy: The Last IPhone, HTC, Samsung Galaxy, or else AND WHY
I don't know WHAT SHOULD I CHOOSE ????????
So even if it's a Video camera, Camorder, NO DSLR, ... Should I buy: Canon ... Panasonic ... Sony ...
I don't know WHAT SHOULD I CHOOSE ????????


PS: I won't sync the audio with the video by recording the audio with something else and the video with the camera or the phone. It feel like cheating or too complicated for me.

Also I won't BUY them all and TRY them all one by one to find the one that work perfecly with what I need (great audio, 1080 HD ...)

Then you ask them what they used.

About cheating. I never considered that cheating. It's how I get the best results. My son went to "film school" and learned this over the years. Here you got the inside scoop without the 4 year payment.

I want to know if there a way to do it without the DSLR ...
by metaldude2014 / October 21, 2014 8:54 AM PDT

I want to know if there a way to do it WITHOUT the "DSLR" (Not allowed in any venue So I can have that)
And the sync ????
If it's a video camera, camorder or else in the same departement that I need !!!! What Model or Brand Should I buy ???????

And also If it's not a video camera, camcorder... that I need and IT'S A PHONE What Model or Brand Should I buy ???????


Please I won't have a Camera for the video in one hand (HD 1080 Video Image) and Recorder Devices for the audio (Great audio) and trying to start the recording from the 2 devices at the same time and match the audio and video recording with any video editing program. No way I waon't do that there's another way AND THOSE VIDEO EXEMPLE THAT I POST EARLIER PROVES IT !!!!!

Looking at their other work
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 21, 2014 9:10 AM PDT

It looks like they are recording for the band which makes me think this is some camcorder or DSLR. Many shows don't allow that so back to the usual iPhones and if you want great audio, we've gone over that.

I can't explain why some folk don't get the great audio part. Guess they need to spend the four years at it (my son took that long!)

by metaldude2014 / October 21, 2014 9:21 AM PDT

If you say that should go with a phone what phone could give me a great quality or the quality that I'm looking for ? Model + Brand ?

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?
