Recently, I have been working on a lot of video projects and sound tends to be a huge issue. ROAR, RUMBLE, and HISS all culprits in that arena! I have been trying a bunch of different microphones, multi captures, and software editing. This is probably one of many installments to come of working with audio with your DSLR footage. With this post, lets keep it cheap cause all of you should be spending money on lenses instead of microphones.
The NPPA has some great cheap solutions that professional and upcoming journalists use. Read and watch their video by clicking the banner below.
The Photo Video Show also has this awesome video tutorial on just using iphone headphones to capture sound which I tried and works amazingly well! Click the banner below for that.
Yes, you do need Final Cut Pro X to edit and Sync your Audio, but if you are making videos, you should be using FCPX or Adobe Premier Pro anywayayayaya - ye!
Have fun! - Carlos
