VIDEO: Your FOUR Microphone Options
The following are the four microphone options demonstrated in the video above. Make sure to WATCH the video to hear each mic in action.
Microphone Option #1: Your Onboard Mic
The onboard mic is the microphone that is “built-in” on your existing camera. Each camera is different, so each mic will be different. For obvious reasons, you should avoid using the onboard mic like the plague…no matter how “convenient” it is!
But you ALSO want to find a camera that has an input for an external microphone jack (extremely important!) Here is a previous video I did on Video Cameras I personally recommend: Video Camera Reviews
I am ALSO a huge advocate of the iPhone 5s for filming your marketing videos. Here’s my review of iPhone 5s’s video camera here: iPhone 5s Video Camera Review
Microphone Option #2: The Wired Lavalier
Microphone Option #3: The Rode NTG2 Condenser Shotgun Mic
Microphone Option #4: The Sony Wireless Lavalier System
