    Yup. As you pointed out you also get good stuff when the recorder is left running when you’d often turn off another recorder. I’ll likely use some post-interview bits in this edit, because the candid...

    Thanks for the suggestions folks. The Tascam option seems nice, but I am pretty hesitant about anything I can't monitor.. But the benefits of weight/price/size/battery consumption are all nice. It...

    I don't disagree, but not typically an option on quick one-man-band shoots. For sit down interviews i'd like to add a stand I can swing a boom on so I can feasibly be behind camera and mic, be able...

    Thanks for that. Sounds like both would work well enough in either case. Assuming equal-enough quality for my use-case, what are the pros/cons of the two systems? Maybe it's just a case of grabbing...

    I am currently using a Tascam 40d with At875r on top of the camera and a pistol grip to capture sound on videography and interview jobs.

    I'd like to add a lav system.

    Thank you - that's really good clarity. Yes I've been in-and-around things to keep perspective. I'm also trying to reign in my tendency to try and buy solutions that won't actually be that suitable...

    Nat sound? is that another term for ambient sound, or reference track?
