    Love taking my little Canon Powershot to gigs.

    Sometimes though sound is overwhelmed by the bins (listen to Red Hot Chili Peppers Sunderland video here and you'll see what I mean).

    I'm racking my brains trying to think of something which I could attach to the camera that would cut the bass without changing volume of other sounds. Hope I'm making sense?

    Found this on VideoHelp about processing... may or may not be of some use. But also, from that thread:


    Quote: With live music and a camera with a built in microphone, I have used a fabric band-aid (plaster) to cover over the microphone hole to reduce the bass and distortion. A cheap fix, but it often works.

    I tried all sorts of low shelf filters and other post processing stuff in Vegas to no avail. I think it will have to be the bandage / tape. Will have to do some tests. Real shame cos I got some really fun footage Sad

    Really I should have said external mic, looks like the one built into the camera is struggling.

    It's just certain gigs, I thought Springsteen sound was okay?

    I'd have to get external mic and external recorder then sync it up later, bang goes the travelling light with just the S95. Really need an S95 fix. Could also do with a stick type of thing to lift camera above heads more comfortably, something that screws into tripod socket

    Easier enough to make or buy, if I can transform a telescopic hiking pole into a monopod I`m sure you can manage this.

    I understand that these are getting rave reviews.

    I think I need something that won't look like a weapon, steadies the camera a little too. Mini monopod or such like

    Tape up the legs of this and you have a mini-monopod. It's about 9 inches long.
