Camera sound recording quality poor, Need advice on alternate ways to record.
on Oct 21, 2010 at 11:52:49 pm

Hello this is my first time on the forum and the website. I'm making a film soon, but i only have a JVC Everio GZ-HM300SEK Camcorder and although the video quality is fine the audio is pretty poor. Basically i'm wanting to use a boom mic but as the camera dosen't have a attachment for boom mic i was wondering is there something i can hook the boom mic up too and then sync the audio up later, preferably something cheap and easy to use.

Thanks.

Hello Robert,

What sort of audio input does the camera have?

Regards,

i don't think it has any it has an earphone jack and that's about it, that's why i was wanting to record sound seperatly, like i said it's a pretty basic camera i was just wondering how i would go about recording sound sepratly then sync it with the film in post. Thank you Rob

As the camera does not have audio inputs you will have to use a separate audio recording system. A common "basic" package popular with the indie crowd is the Zoom H4n and the Audio Technica AT875 shotgun. I would also recommend a hypercardioid like the Oktava mk-012 if you are doing a lot of shooting indoors. A step up for the audio recorder would be the Marantz PMD-661 or the Fostex FR2-LE, modified versions of which are available from Oade Brothers (which I would highly recommend).
