Here at Videomaker, we often delve into the academic fundamentals of video production. We try to boil everything down to the “right way” of doing things.

So, you've got a small budget and you finally believe that the audio you capture for your project is just as important as the video, (we told you so!) but you can only purchase one mic. Shotgun mics on boom poles are the mainstay in Hollywood, but maybe you just shoot weddings in your spare time, or do a local commercial every now and then to help make ends meet. Well, here's some pros and cons of the most common mic types, and what they're good at.

Videomaker has released a new DVD to help videographers, filmmakers, teachers and documentarians capture the best possible audio for their video productions in the recording studio.
I have been tasked with creating videos for my organization. The videos will be primarily tutorials, CEO messages and recordings of various community events as well as the occassional video podcast. My video production experience would be best classified as "Beginner".
As I've been putting together my list of hardware and software needs, I want to make sure I don't buy equipment that's well beyond our needs, but also will not give us buyer's remorse in the near future. I also want to be considerate of cost; especially since this is a new function for the organization.
I'm on the lookout for a handheld wireless microphone to improve the audio of my videos. My camera has no jack for a wiredmicrophone, neither do any of the cameras in my price range in the UK.
* Could anyone recommend a wireless microhone which plugs into acomputer?
* Is it feasible to try and sync this audio with video using video editing software>
Many thanks from Joe a new member :)
I am beginning my first documentary about the life and times in my old neighborhood, and I would like to interview some of the people that I grew up with.
Of course, I could use the built-in microphone on my camcorder, but I would like to use a lavalier microphone as I believe I would get a better audio result.
However, I know practically nothing about how to use them (even the most basic knowledge of how they work). Is there a resource that I can find out about this, even at the most basic level?
I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, however I couldn't find another place so I apologize if this isnt the correct place.
I just upgraded to the Sennheiser G3 wireless microphones, and I'm really needing help as to accurately adjusting the settings. If anyone has experience I'd appreciate any help you can give me.
Any recommendations for clip on mics, attached mics,
or wireless mics to enable the recording of at least 3 people for the Kodak Zi8
camera & the iTouch?
Any ideas, thoughts, help would be gratefully accepted. I am bringing in the Canon GL2 as a new addition to my work. I have some basic Shure mics and a Mackie 402VLZ3 small mixer. My objective is to be able to travel with my equipment, show up at a location and be up and running to film and audio record. I think the Mackie mixer I have will work but I am asking if there are any mics (small) but that offer good audio recording quality.
