    Personally, I wouldn’t put a $1500 or $2000 mic on a camera. The on-camera mic is in a precarious place, subject to quite a bit of abuse and damage. It also seems a shotgun is the better choice...

    The noise floors on the 4053b and the CK93 are comparable, 16dB and 17dB respectively, which isn’t terrible. By comparison, the MKH-8050 is rated at 12dB, which is very quiet. That said, everything...

    Thanks, Roland. Here in the US it’s nearly impossible to find most Blue Line capsules, but as I said, B&H still stock the CK93 and the power supply module, so I guess they’re just moving through...

    The CK93 is still available, at least through B&H. I cannot seem to find anyone stocking any of the other capsules. Last I checked, they were still listed on AKG’s website, all as part of the Blue...

    Another one to consider in that range is the AKG Blueline CK93. I really like what this mic has to offer as a hypercardioid. I believe another member has one listed for sale in the Marketplace right...

    For that, look at the Audio Technica AT875r. Very inexpensive shotgun, smaller and lightweight, that makes a great camera mic.

    The general term you’re looking for is snorricam (lots of DIY solutions on the googles). You need only mount back-to-back GoPros or similar to get both face and POV shots. It looks, though, like the...

    Hi, Jim.

    First, it may be helpful to clarify what is commonly misrepresented in which mic is used where. There’s not a “made for indoors” mic, nor a “made for outdoors” mic. What there are, are...

    The short answer is that it is possible. All the stuff housed together in that little unit - pre-amp, A/D converter, recorder, transmitter - can be problematic if they aren’t all properly shielded...

    Bragging rights?

    Time code boxes are sound department responsibility. On the plus side, a 2-pack of Sync E boxes isn’t terribly expensive. But yeah, the dumb slate has been the standard since the talkies first came...

    The 4097 seems like a great idea, and the sound quality is in line with what one would expect from DPA. The problem is that it is way too easy to...

    It sounds like a lav.

    Placement is key when you’re using a lavaliere mic. The closer you get to the little pit at the base of your neck, the more muddled things can sound. That effect is worse on...
