I am looking for help in regards to buying a digital camera with a mic that records high quality sound. I first started recording a band with my Kodak V530. The picture was not great at all, but sounbd wasn't bad. I think I paid $150 for that Kodak. So I wanted to upgrade to get HD video with a high quality sound. So I bought the Sony cybershot T500. It has the HD movie capabilities & has stereo sound mics. I used the camera last night & the sound is awful. I am recording at a very high volume. The T500 had a very distorted sound. The Kodak must have had a mic that adjusted it's recording level based on how loud it was. I am looking for something that is pocket size. Please advise. Thanks!

I'm looking for the same thing.

My Lumix did a decent job of recording video but I need to replace it.

Even with high quality camcorders, you're always better off with an external microphone.

I have a Canon S2 that has very good stereo sound.

You can adjust the mics.

Figure the S3,SX10 are probaly the same.

KodakZ1012 also has stereo sound. Don't know anything about it.
