Hi All,

I'm new to video photography and my aim is to take videos of a rock band (Concerts and rehersals).

That means that the video will be taken in low light conditions, and the audio should be reasonable (possibly XLR input with phantom power?).

I'm looking for mini DV camera, I don't think that HD is a must, I'd rather put my money on a better sensor and lense. on the other hand, I'm not sure that a "pro" camcorder is the right way to go...

Any suggestions on an entry level camera that would not be too expensive, but will be sufficient enough for my needs?
