Whether you’re shooting with a DSLR with sub par audio controls or you need more inputs than your camcorder has, a field mixer can help expand your audio possibilities and get you better quality audio.
Wedding audio is just as important as the images, whether it's an indoor or an outdoor wedding. Everyone loves to see the first kiss, but a wedding ceremony without clean audio is little more than a silent movie. An extra bit of attention to wedding audio is well worth the effort.
Shotgun microphones are great. They’re portable, directional and easy to use in a variety of situations. But sometimes, it’s not the best — or only — option. If you don’t have a shotgun mic at your disposal or just prefer not to use one, it’s a good idea to explore the alternatives.
If you want to use your smartphone or tablet to get high quality audio, you need an external mic. The RØDE SmartLav is designed to do just that. Paired with your favorite recording app, or the free app from RØDE, this little mic can give you a portable audio solution.
