I would get the Canon Vixi


I would get the Canon Vixia HV30 ($800) and spend the extra couple hundred and get the B and H MKE400 kit ($300), which will come with a mini boom and litepanel with an extension arm and windmuff…

You’ll be shooting in HD and be getting good enough audio for anything.. Plus the kit comes with a great little light for dark or nighttime shots (ie: in a club before/after performance, outside clubs, car rides, etc..) and an extension arm so you can set up the mic and light at the same time… Then go to radio shack and buy a cheap trip and you’re ready to go…
