So I have a Sennheiser 600 microphone going into my DSLR and it sounds awesome but i have to keep the input level low-ish to avoid noise. Would I be better off with a lower-quality, but higher-gain mic like the Videomic Pro? I need great sound and I assume I could get it by adding a pre-amp to the Sennheiser, but I'm done adding equipment to my kit.
So, does anyone have an opinion on whether the tradeoffs would be worth it?
Hello, folks! I'm new here, but have been reading for a while! :) I was hoping one of you geniuses may be able to help. I just got a Canon XA20 and a Rode NTG-2 and the audio works perfectly in-camera and sounds fine, but when I export it to Windows, it appears to have no audio. If, however, I drop it into a video editor (I'm using Vegas), it has a mono track, but still can't be heard.
Innovation and iOS are words that are often seen together, but now add RØDE to this list with the release of smarLav. It’s a lapel microphone that makes it easy to record to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via the headphone jack.
What is a better microphone for my Sony HDR-Fx7 camera? I've been looking at Rode Videomic and the Rode Stereo Videomic. Suggestions? Or if there is any mic better than the 2, within the price range is good. Thank you!
