  1. How good are the built-in stereo mics on this camera? Previous Sony compact zoom cameras were considered really good for shooting concert video. Venues won't allow you to bring in anything bigger than that and because it has a good zoom it's better than shooting concert video than standard cell phones. I just wish they'd have better features for audio like the LG V series cell phones.
