Let’s face it. We have all made mistakes and still do from time to time. Chances are that they were minor slips that were hardly noticed and easily corrected. Here is how to deal with them, anticipate them, and hopefully prevent them by learning and getting experience on our side.
If you or an assistant have ever wasted precious time on a set fumbling around with proper mic placement on a subject, you weren’t using the DPA d:screet Necklace Microphone. The necklace mic is designed to provide an easy solution for quick, repeatable, placement and removal by non-professionals.
Using a boom mic may sound like a simple job, but the truth is, it’s a lot harder than it looks. It takes focus, stamina and a little technical know how to get it right. We show you the right way to use a boom mic, including set up, operating techniques, positioning, choosing the right mic for the job and achieving audio perspective.

Not all microphones are created equal. Where a dynamic handheld mic shines, a shotgun mic might fall short. No matter what type of video you're producing, hearing how mics perform with different placements can help you choose the right mic for the job. We test several types of mics including shotgun, dynamic handheld, and lavalier to illustrate the sound difference.
