Good audio equipment
on Apr 26, 2007 at 5:24:28 am

I am just starting out getting my own equipment and have little knowledge of good audio equipment(shotgun mic, fish pole, blimp windscreen or wind muff?) I am doing a lot of indoor and outdoor shooting and I can get away with using a wireless lapel but i have no idea which one works the best without being visible. Sorry for so many questions, I would appreciate any advice! Thanks

Lots to know.

you need a mixer, headphones, lavs, shotgun and hyper with wind protection, cables, wireless gear.

Buy really cheap and you regret it.

I'd recommend buying a few things of high quality rather than lots of junk. Assuming that you have a camera mic and that you're a one-man-band:

First, buy decent headphones with good isolation from ambient noise. Then, buy the best wireless/lav combo you can afford; make sure you can also use it hard-wired.

That'll be all you absolutely need for one-man-band. You can add the rest as you really need it, or you can hire a sound recordist who has more bells and whistles than you can imagine.

Good luck!
