So I work the door at a music venue/bar, and have been using an Aiptek camera that I have had for some time to record live footage of amazing local and international bands. I hate this camera! I cant get it to stop changing focal point (there is a live light show projected behind the bands), and it only runs on batteries which is rather limiting. I would like to buy a camera to solve these issues. I have a limited budget, say 300 dollars give or take. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Have you considered buying a few of the chinese GoPro type cameras? Pretty decent pictures and you can mount them all over the place discretely. You can buy quite nice semi-pro cameras second hand on ebay if you want something more conventional.

I bought Toshiba Camileo H30 to take on vacation. We were going to Disneyland! It is so easy to use and the pic quality and sound are great. The perfect size to fit in your hand...If you don't have a large SD card, get something you can download your pics onto after you fill it up. I would recommend this camera to anybody...the battery is pretty long lasting also. This is the first time I used Amazon also...so easy and the delivery was efficient, came before the dates quoted! http://www.writecheapessay.com

For a limited budget, heres a list of some cameras and handycams, wich will suit you the best for your purpose:

Canon PowerShot G7 X
Fujifilm X30
Canon VIXIA HF R700

Theres so many options, myself i had a sony 220e handycam wich performed nicely on low light stages and concerts, tough sony handycams under 500Euros or dollars can be pretty noisy sometimes, and the focus keep searching light. Depends alot of the environment. On a stage with lights behind pretty good, on indoors pretty grainny......
If you have alot of light where you going to shoot i would recommend as brands sony or panasonic, any of those low budget handycams work pretty well, and have a great sound also. If you looking for something better those 3 up there work pretty well. . However im a professional, im not an expert. Currently i work with canon on a bigger budget.

All those 3 cameras have a lifetime bat duration aprox of 2 hours. I advice also using good SD cards, especially on those cameras. SDHC class 10s always - 30minimum MB/S to 95MB/S cards will make all diference in what you shoot. Dont be shy when buying cards.

To finish this post all ive to say is, i would always choose a handycam over a photography camera for video. For multiple reasons, everyone has their own tastes. ;)

Hope i was helpfull.

Cheers.
