      I’m looking for a Camera Mic to do low budget tech videos in place of the dredded in camera mic. I’ll be using it both indoors and out, probably no farther than 15-20 ft. distance. Budget is $75, camera being used is a Cannon ZR930, I’m not worried about mounting. Here is the microphone I’m thinking of getting this one:

      Azden XMS-10 Microphone

      Does anyone have a better recommendation for less than $75? Also I plan to periodically use a 3.5mm extension to position the mic away from the camera, about how long can the extension be without causing too much noise in the line?

      I’ve heard good things about the Azden XMS-10, but haven’t used it. After reading the forums and asking around, I had a friend that suggested the RODE Videomic and I found one on Craigslist.org for less than $60 and it works very well for me!
