Hello my friends!
Alright so, I got a Cannon T2i that I need to start getting good audio off of without recording the audio on a separate recording device.
I understand that sadly the Cannon T2i has that damned AGC that you cant turn off. I need a mic setup for a news room (with 1 anchorman) and a dynamic mic for street interviews.
As far as the New's Room mic, I'm thinking about going with the NTG-2 Rode shotgun mic. I've seen/heard some test's and it seems like it will work out very well, for how simplistic the audio will be. The only thing I am worried about is how well it will do with that damned AGC. I did see a video where this guy plugged a mp3 player into the right channel to keep the AGC (audio gain control) at a constant level, but that's ridiculous. Has anybody used a shotgun mic of this caliber on the Cannon T2i or 550D?
For the street interview mic I'm just thinking about getting a dynamic mic. Any Suggestions? Thanks guys!
