I agree with Andy for the most part. My rule has always been that even if
the image is amazing, if the audio is bad the audience will hate what they
are watching and won't know why (it will be because they have to spend
extra effort to understand the audio they are hearing).
However IMHO for strictly archival and transcription purposes, cheap quick
low-quality cellphone/cheap camcorder stuff CAN sometimes work.
Also per what Isarra said, if audio is being amplified in any way, it's
best to plug your video camera/audio recorder into that source directly, or

Sometimes though, audience members will ask questions, and those might not
be recorded. Again, having a professional there helps with this.

Recording video* is easy; you can do it on most mobile
phones these days.
And on that note, the wiki indaba conference was recorded solely on a
mobile phone. Although sound quality wasn't the best, with considerable
thought on getting an appropriate accessory to handle sound, phones are
also an alternative worth looking into.
