I want to record a few episodes where I go out and record public opinions in town/city centres across the UK.
What type of camcorder, and in particular microphone/audio, requirements do you think I will need?
I did a trial film session in Cheltenham with a JVC everio - this was a standard personal use camcorder.
The visual quality was ok, but the sound was awful as it picked up any bit of wind noise, and also filming people talking from a few feet away on such a camcorder is too quiet.
How do you think I could best go about picking up people's voices whom I am interviewing, whilst at the same time filming them from some feet away?
Bearing in mind I will be filming, and there will be an interviewer with me.
Many thanks in advance.
