filming...lighting problems

I filmed a couple of bands last night...hayseed dixie and their support act.I have watched the shows back and the lighting leaves band members looking like white objects( no real detail) when i zoom out,is this oversaturation or whatever it is called??.Also filming in low light causes the picture to look grainy,not awful and unwatchable,but a grainy appearance.Is there anyway to reduce either of these problems,any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Re: filming...lighting problems

sounds like it was overexposed...you might wanna set yer exposure a bit lower...if you have a "zebra" option, use it...set exposure so only a few highlights on the face, white shirts, stage lights, etc are zebra-ing

and yes, low light will cause grainyness...not much you can do really
