External DSLR Mic Suggestions
#7
Like most say it depends on what you want as an end product.
When I was recording video with a sony camera (DV Tapes) the mic on that was pretty abysmal, when compared with a cheap tape recorder and cheap sony mikes. That was in the 80/90s, so technology has come along in leaps and bounds (I guess).
I imagine the camera mike will get you a basic sound if the source is close to the camera. Measured in similar distances to an onboard flash.
Much further than 4 -6 metres it loses all clarity and defeats the object. IMO
A bit like me now, I can hear the noise but it don't make any sense.
Lumix LX5.
Canon 350 D.+ 18-55 Kit lens + Tamron 70-300 macro. + Canon 50mm f1.8 + Manfrotto tripod, in bag.
