I have a Canon GL-1 and the mic on it is very sensitive and works great for most of my shooting needs without an additional mic (which I will eventually get up for other shots), but when I am recording live events such as bands (inside venues), I get a ton of bad audio when the music plays. (esp bass) Is there any way to cut this down, other than to film from a distance and zoom in? (and even that doesn’t sound so hot) Would one of those windscreens or foam elements help out with this problem? (muffle)
I am not familiar with a lot of audio workings yet and would appreciate any advice. I know the GL-1 has an audio setting but I believe that just separates the channels.
