How good is the idea, that instead of hiring these

the WMF/Wikimania grabs a set of, say 10 portable, yet good video cameras,

Recording video* is easy; you can do it on most mobile phones these days.
What is difficult is providing audio of sufficient quality; you need
good, well placed microphones, operated by someone who knows what they
are doing, This is especially important when you consider that many
people will not be listening in their native language.
Then there's the issue of closed captions....
* Likewise streaming it - if you have sufficient bandwidth; ideally
not the public Wi-Fi.
