sound equipment help needed .

 12:20 pm on Apr 7, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

i am interested in opinions on sound equipment for videos to be published on a website.

image quality tends to be what most talk about, but I always thought that poor sound quality kills a video...

so i am looking for a seperate sound capture than from a digitial camara.

particularly for doing interviews in convention halls, background noise is high, so a mic is needed...

what else ?

The first place I'd start is getting a pro-sumer cam with a hot-shoe and auxiliary audio inputs. You can get for example a Canon GL2 that has both, they make a microphone attachemnt with XLR inputs which is connected to the mini-jack auxiallry inputs on the cam.

Sound isn't my strong point so I really have no suggestions from there but once you have that you can select from a multitude of professional mics, I'm sure they must make one for that type of environment.

a) around 90$ you'll find the classic Shure SM58; good sound, solid build and good directional pattern to make interviews (it only gets the sound beyond itself and ignores what sounds behind)

b) cheaper (around 30$) but not so well built, the Behringer XM8500 gives you the-same-but-less performance.

If you will make a lot of interviews and the mic will be always rolling from bag to hand, you should buy three Behringer mics.
