Hey guys, I was hoping for some advice on audio setup for interviews and speaking events. I shoot videos on a budget and so right now i am shooting video on a consumer grade HDvideo-camerathat cost less than a grand. I have saved up a couple hundred, and i cannot improve the video quality since it would mean a propervideo-camera. Instead i thought why notimproveon the audio quality. The last video i took can be seen here :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcngkMnP1P0&feature=relmfu
As you can tell the audio is not very good - so i was thinking of using an audio recorder with a mic attached for interviews, and for speakers such as the video above t0 record audio directly from the soundboard?
So is that a viable solution/good idea? or would a shotgun mic work better for interviews?? I will also be shooting interviews outdoors as well. I was thinking to use an audio recorder to get the direct sound and use the mic on the camera to get the field sound?
i only have a couple hundred- so please let me know if purchasing an audio recorder is the smart choice? and if so what would be a simple but well-rounded recorder for under 200? Appreciate any help thanks guys!
