The other night I tried a Canon SX600HS with a Nikon Coolpix S6800 at the show.
The Canon SX600HS worked great .The batteries last forever and the videos came out great with no overload and distortion with the sound.To bad the sound is mono only.
The Nikon Coolpix S6800 took great photos and crisp video.The sound was a different story which was overloaded with distortion.The sound is stereo on this camera.
Maybe there is a level control in a hidden menu.The battery quit around the end of the show about 3 songs before the end of a 2 hours and 30 plus minute show.
The both camera zooms were great from where I was sitting in the XL Center in Hartford CT in section 104 row G in seat 3.
I like some help on looking for a camera like these with stereo sound onboard .About the same size of these point and shoots.
Thanks an advance...
