I have been using the following mic on my Sony Camcorders with wonderful  
results for several years, including my new HD Sony Hard Drive recorder.
Model Number: ECM-MS957
Note: I use a separate mic stand for it.

Do any of you have any experience with stereo  mics 
for camcorders? 

I've made over 350 videos of bands in the  SF Bay Area 
and am feeling the need to improve the quality of the sound.  

I have a Sony hi-def camcorder.  I bought a Sony external mic  
which did not work for me.  It recorded highs, but not lows. 
Very  tinny sounding.  I think that mic was meant for interviewing, 
not  recording jazz bands. 

I make most of my videos in bars, with my  camcorder on a  
table tripod.  I never have room for anything  very big. 

Any suggestions, advice, admonitions?
