You want a super-zoom P&S, Bryan.  Something that you can shoot from the TS during packed shows.  All around P&S if you will.

I suggest any of the following Canon PowerShot models.  All are part of the same food chain.

Canon SX230 (2011), SX260 (2012), SX280 (2013), SX600 (2014), SX700 (2014)

I grabbed the SX700 recently since my camera is dieing and I really like it so far.

Has anyone used the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS ?

I am looking for a P&S strictly for HD1080 video. Images quality is secondary.
I know it's a little big but I have seen these types in venues and wonder if the HD
is better then my current Sony HX20V ??

Thanks for any info.

I would not expect the sx50 to be much of a step up from the hx20v

Once I started researching I found that it had the same sensor size as the HX20V.
I then found this beauty that has a 1" sensor and shoots 4K.

So I bought it.

That looks nice but a bit big for most shows i go to,another promising one is the Panasonic dmc LX 100 smaller ,bigger sensor,has 4k and supposedly has 60min recording vs. 29Min limit on other one.

I would kill for this one or even a few of the new Sony's but they have no real zoom.
You would have to be stage front to get anything decent. I think a 400mm zoom or more is a must
unless you are just documenting.
