Hi everybody

right, i`ll cut to the chase...

i need a camera to take good pictures of my band at various gigs, will be low flashy type stage lighting at most gigs, and also when i have days out with the missus outdoors

a most important feature of my new purchase will be 1080p HD recording and stereo sound, which camera for my budget is good at this and will be better than using a mobile phone, eg: iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S3

i`m very new to all this, so be gentle lol
