    Default Frustrated Interview Guy. Need help with mic's

    :( So I lash out 90 to buy a Rode Videomic. Unfortunately, although it picks up the words of an interviewee in a room quite well, it also picks up 'ALL' of the noise from the camcorder. To such an extent that although the onboard Sony TRV10e mic is a bit tinnier, it's still the better choice because you don't have any of the hugely irritating background whirr!

    So now I am tempted to take the Rode Videomic back to the shop and try to change for a regular Mic. Of course the camcorder Mic port doesn't accomodate a regular mic lead, so:

    a) Anyone know of a mic with a 3 metre plus cable that will plug into the regular camcorder mic port and give me good interview audio quality ?
    b) Anywhere I can buy a 'cheap' adapter/cable to get a regular mic into the TRV10e 1/8 inch port?

    TY in advance.

    By the way, eventually when I buy the HD Cam all this will go away but it's soooooo frustrating

    Strange that! I just bought a Rode Video Mic. I used it for a recent wedding shoot, and was quite delighted with the results. Have you tried setting the microphone to the High Pass Filter setting?

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
