Sound Professional: Get Close to Your Subject. Always get your Video Mic as close as you can to the speaking subject for the most professional result - within four feet is ideal. This is why professional sound recordists use a boom, and you can too.Just add a VC1 extension cable and a Micro Boompole, which are fully compatible with Video Mic. Avoid Hiss: Use Manual Audio Recording Mode. To get the best from any mic and avoid hearing hiss in quiet speaking environments, it's essential you turn OFF Auto Gain Control in your camera's movie recording settings - as well as getting the microphone close to the subject. Set the audio levels manually, so that your speaking subject is hitting around the "-12", without going too much over.
This will give a good level without distortion, and without the camera amplifying background noise when the subject is silent. Avoid Clicks and Whirrs: Use Manual Focus.
The focusing motor inside some affordable lenses can be surprisingly noisy, and any good sensitive microphone will hear this too. If you do have a noisy lens, do as they do on a professional film set, and focus manually for silent recordings.
If you must use autofocus, use the Video Mic off-camera with a boom or tripod, and a VC1 extension cable. Avoid Interference: Turn Camera WiFi Off. All microphones, including the Video Mic, can experience interference from strong external RF fields, such as very close WiFi transmitters. Turning off the WiFi function of your camera whilst filming is always good practice, and can help prevent any potential interference. SC7 & RODEGrip: Connect to iPhone or iPad.
The optional SC7 cable lets you connect the Video Mic directly to an iPhone or iPad. Add the Grip accessory and free Rec app and you have a handy handheld iPhone recording system. If you have a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter, a Video Mic and SC7 will work just fine with it. Deadcat GO: Clear Sound Outdoors.
