I need to record sound, (at a decent quality, but low end) off camera, to load into an editting package at a later date.
DAT recorders are quite expensive and I wondered if there was a cheaper alternative. Maybe Miini-disc? Or an MP3 recorder??
I'm also ignorant when it comes to microphones. Reading about them I think a shotgun might be best for what I need. But do I need anything else to convert a microphone output to a "line in" socket on the device I choose? Or would I be better getting a device with a mic input?
Also, I can't seem to find any local companies that sell what I need, never mind be able to advise me. If you have any suggestions of internet companies, please let me know.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
