    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?

    No, but seriously... both features and ruggedness. Lectro SM transmitters have an IFB compatibility mode, so they can function flawlessly as IFB transmitters without adding any...

    We had a saying at my old TV station: “Communication is our business. It’s not what we do.”

    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...

    First off, I love that you linked that video. An oldie but a goodie, and something that’s iconic to Tarantino films in its own way. Regarding your question, I also love that you linked that video...

    What you’re looking for is commonly referred to as IFB (though Paul correctly points out that “Comtek” is also widely used to refer to the same, regardless of which brand system is actually used)....

    I can’t speak personally to Godox, Genaray, or GVM, but I’ve been on set many times with both Aputure and Intellytech. Fans aren’t an issue. The manufacturers have kept them remarkably quiet, and...

    “Noise” can mean different things. If you can post a sample - maybe upload to Soundcloud and post the link here - we can hear what you hear. Just giving us your settings also won’t tell us much,...

    First thing, honestly, is to hire a good CPA. They can walk you through all of the taxes, incorporation issues, etc.

    It may not be that you’re quite at the point that you need to incorporate as an...

    DPA make excellent mics, both lavs and shotguns.

    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's been close to 10 years. A lot has changed.

    I mean... a lot.

    So the original post has been updated.

    Addressed sound in the other thread.

    That slight adjustment in distance from the background made a noticeable difference! Everything has a nice softness now: not in focus, but not too blurred....

    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...

    Which RØDE shotgun did you start with, just out of curiosity?

    I think the larger issue here is that you’re working with very bare-bones sound gear that isn’t really robust. Yes, it can be used....

    Hi, Joshua!

    I can’t quite put a finger on why I love this as much as I do, but I do. It’s weird (in a good way), and strangely effective, and it dragged me in. How did the concept come about?

    Hi, Gigi!

    The first things I notice are that focus is mostly good (watch your closeups) and the lighting is bright and even. For this genre of YT video, fairly even lighting with just a touch of...

    Yep. That sounds suspiciously like mobile phones pinging their nearby towers. These little camera-top mics use unbalanced wiring with very poor shielding. And often the internal design isn’t exactly...

    The ground cover was pretty crunchy, even after we went over it. Some crew tracking off to the sides were off the path where there was no way to minimize that completely. I had almost assumed that,...

    Thanks! We’ve all (cast and crew) been on the edges of our seats, waiting for the final film to drop. COVID delayed a lot of things, but it’s here and I really hope people watch and enjoy it!

    0dB sensitivity on the transmitter? That’s probably going to be distorted beyond repair.

    There’s no magic set of numbers here. You need to learn proper gain staging and how to adjust it each time...
