Good evening I'm starting to do a little more video work with my EOS M and I like using it for video but I find its not getting the audio I want. I'm looking to buy my first external mic but don't know where to start. I want to do some simple instructional videos like how to style so I'm thinking something like a lapel mic or a shotgun if those will work too. Can anyone point me to some good brands or something you already use that would save me time and money testing. Thank you!
I own the Rode Stereo Videomic Pro:
I actually had it on camera when I recorded this:
|Reload drills with ALG Defense Flared Magwell for the Glock 17||Small | Large|
But when I speak in a video, I use a cheap wired lavalier mic from Amazon (look for item: B002HJ9PTO).
|ALG Defense Flared Magwell (AFM) for the Glock 17||Small | Large|
When I'm lazy, I'll just hook up the mic directly to the camera. If I need to, I'll just plug the wired lav microphone into a Zoom H1 that's in my back pocket and then use the Rode on camera for environmental audio and then sync it all with Pluraleyes.
