I would like to know whether there are any good video cameras out there for capturing a wide range of sound without difficulty.
I just use my Canon Ixus 750i at the moment but it gets completely ovwewhelmed by the sound of a DC-3 or IL-18 in the cabin, for example:
Also, note the sound difference between my B707 Take-off and a similar video from the same trip taken by Loran. His seems to pick up the engine sounds much more clearly than mine during take-off:
B707 Take-off - Mine
B707 Take-off - Loran's
However, upon landing, mine seems to cope with the reverse thrust better than his:
B707 Landing - Mine
B707 Landing - Loran's
If there any reasonably priced cameras/vid cameras out there which can cope with such a range of sounds without becoming too distorted; and have good image quality; I would very much appreciate any reccomendations.
