    I'll be going to a very loud rock n roll show tomorrow night at a small bar... while im not really worried about the video quality, i am concerned about the audio. Has anybody tried to record anything loud like this? If its going to be crazy overblown then im just gonna focus on taking pictures instead. ANy opinions? thanks

    I did for a live band playing at a park from a distance, and the sound was blown out in some circumstances. I'd say the best thing to do is just to do a short clip and see if your Lumia does it too.

    video was pretty nice imo, but the autofocus was a little aggressive and there was no way to lock it from what I can tell. It wild refocus sometimes but I don't think it's enough to ruin the video.

    If you anticipate it being loud, especially in a small bar (read: space), expect soundwaves bouncing all over the place before landing into your phone. The audio won't be pretty no matter what.

    I recommend that you forget about it and just enjoy the show. This is what will happen when you record with the Nokia Lumia 900 when the audio is too loud


    Alternative get Nokia 808 pureview. You will fall in love to Nokia Rich Recording


    What happen if u have a phone without rich recording?

    I used my 900 for a loud band in a small club and... mud. Almost unrecognizable as music, and the band was electric violin so the music was actually pretty tuneful. So I'd suggest... shoot one short video, just to make yourself thankful later that you didn't try to shoot the whole show, then either take stills, or better yet ignore your gadgets and dance and have a crazy good time.

    That's the same thing that happened to me, about the same distance as well. Wonder if its software or hardware related. I just tried recording some music being played rather loudly off my laptops speakers, and putting the phone right next to it, and the sound wasn't blown up like it was recording live music. I'm not an expert at these things, so I was thinking it was the loud volume of concerts that caused the distortion or something, but I'd assume that pumping the volume up and putting the mic right next to it might be loud enough to replicate, but apparently it isn't.

    Out of all my phones, the Nokia N8 is the only one that seems to be able to cope with loud concerts. Loud bass seems to be the 1st to distort (clip?) in my experience.

    After reading comments, I'm not going to even bother with my Nexus or Lumia. FYI, I've read the same about the S3 and One X.

    Rich recording (and PureView tech) can't come soon enough to WP8.
