Live Music Clip
Here is a live music clip I shot the other day. I shot this with no Tripod about 50 feet away. I used full auto settings with 60i. I should have used 24p mode because it was getting dark (7:30pm) but I forgot to switch the camera to that mode. This clip has great sound. Check it out.
Damn, I can't wait to get mine! So full auto and no external mic? If so, that's better than any of my external mics.
I was amazed at the sound too. I was at least 50 feet away and the clip sounds like I have a mic on the stage. I was impressed!

If I use my condenser mic I will probably run through a half dozen 9V a day which is way to expensive so I thought I'd try my Seinh.... dynamic which was kind of made for speaker pickups anyway. Since the remote xmitter/receiver costs over $500, I'd have to keep close tabs on the mic so that it doesn't get stolen. Picking up from the speakers is really the best solution because the sound man already mixes all the stage mics and instrument pickups down to a the best mix for the audience. Both sides of the stage receive the same mix so all I need is to be near one speaker farm.

The wireless mics sound like a good idea if you find some that run on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. I find that if you stand near the speakers and don't have too many obstructions in the way the HV20 picks up decent sound. The speakers were really loud that day as well that always helps.
