Hi everyone, new here and hoping some people who have used a Cannon 600D to film can help.
I've had my 600D for a while and I love it. The audio issues are a nightmare though. So far I've been able to use the internalmicbecause I've been filming in my home studio, but I'm on the verge of starting a project that will see me go on location.
I've tried some external microphones, I've tried downloading Magic Lantern (butaudiodoesn't seem to be fixed for the 600D yet), and I've tried playing with the settings. Thus far not much success.
So my question is this: What Microphone/setup should I get?
This is what I will need:
- I'll be doing interviews so at times will need two people's audio
- Sometimes it will be in a location with background noise (outside, coffee shopetc)
- Some general shooting outdoors
What are your thoughts? Will a boommicwork, or a rodeomicto mount the top of the camera be better?
Or should I look at a few lapel microphones, and if so, what else is needed to connect twomicsto the camera at one go. Does it need some hardware, a simple adapter,etcetc???
I suppose I'm hoping someone who shoots video with the 600D can offer me the setup they use. I don't have a huge budget, but now is the time to find out whether I can do this all for a free with some workarounds,for $100, $200,etc
Any help to a poor newbie would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance :)
