Yes, there were several mics and they go through a sound system so I could have taken a feed from the mixer for the band. The band seems to like the results. Thanks for taking a look at the material.

Looks good. I agree with Chris comments, however make sure you have headphones and the mix is good, otherwise see if the board has a maxtix mix on it and adjust as needed, it will make a world of differance. 1/60 shutter is a good setting 1/48 might be ok would give you more light but 1/60 looks good. I am guessing you are shooting in the highest quality mode you have? As for white balance with changing lights of color do indoor setting and leave it, best you can get. I will at times try to white balance but I never like the look after the colored light start shifing. However I will at time use a digital calibration card black/gray/white and turn on the wave form monitor and see what I have and set my iris from there all depends on what you are shooting. Use DRS spareingly and zebras on so you can tell when you are blowing out. This is the toughest type of shooting, just keep doing what you are doing and you will get better with this camera.
You Tube IMHO is killing all the good your camera is doing in the compression to put it on youtube. Vimeo is the way to go, its only $50 a year I think. You are one busy guy from what I see looks good!

Thanks for the feedback - it;s extremely useful to get advice/assistance being in this community.
After reading Barry's book, I keep the wave form monitor on most of the time.
I will sign up with Vimeo and see the difference.
Currently I am cranking out mp4s using Sony Vegas Pro 11. I will shop around for a calibration card (right now I have been getting people to hold up the cardboard sheets that you get back from sending shirts to the dry cleaners). My wife won't do it - too embarrassing she says.
Not happy either helping me carry my construction lights. And, now that I have a Gliders Grey rig, I expect she will want to travel in separate cars.

Here is a good link to find out what the best compression will work. As for the digital card, I also shoot still work so I just have one. I also use a small white backdrop (5*7) to color balance I picked up it at BH I think it was free when we ordered a big backdrop. I also have my wife hold up the same thing, or I find anyone and tell them its fun. However my wife does most of the still shooting so we work togther allot. I am learing everytime I shoot, always trying to make my product better and better. I am just starting to do a non profit peice over the next year for a 200 year old Opera House, should be fun but I am feeling stress because I have to get the shoots the first time no retakes once I do an interview. My wife says it looks fine, but I knit pick all my work apart. Oh well. . . . .
