DSLR Mic Recommendation
on Oct 1, 2010 at 5:04:40 pm

Greetings,

I'm shooting short interviews with a 5D Mark II and am looking into quality affordable audio

Have been steered towards 2 mics

Zoom H1 ($100)

Sennheiser MKE 400 ($350)
http://www.sennheiserusa.com/professional_wired-microphones_camera-mics_502...

I know they're apples and oranges (omni vs shotgun) but I know little about audio. Basically I want to know if it's a good idea to go w/ the H1 or if the Sennheiser's a better price point for the quality.

Thanks

Hello David and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Of the two devices you choose, one is a recorder and the other is a microphone.

The DLSRs have not gained themselves a very good reputation for audio quality. Following that line of fact, ANY mic you stick on them is not likely to yield very good results.

The Zoom H1 is a toy.

Everything depends on your intended use. Maybe you could let us know more about that.

Regards,

Ty Ford
