Well, I'd say brand new, rather a "newbie". The most I've done is create about 30 mins of footage in Windows Movie Maker.

Basically, this is what I'm asking. I need 2x external microphones so the audio quality is better (one for me, one for my friend). What do you recommend? Any help is hugely appreciated.

Would any of these be of use to me?

Thanks in advance,
