Thread: Budget video-cam' Microphones?

  1. #1

    Default Budget video-cam' Microphones?

    My cameras microphone is totally knackered, it records but with all sorts of intermittent crackles and noise (most likely due to it getting the brunt of a salt-water splash the other day)

    so I'm looking for an external microphone, The camera is a Panasonic NV-GS 75, it's got a normal jack-socket input for a mic' and an accessory shoe, (not a hot one though)

    I'm not after crystal clear top-notch sound, just a replacement for the internal one.

    So, would this be OK?

    or are budget mic's not worth bothering with at all?

    if that one's a bad idea, are there any suggestions?

    check out the rode videomic, it was about 70-80 when I got it and it is superb quality for the money, and best of all it fits into a 3.5" jack, whereas a lot of mics I found were XLR only.

    I think that mic will do you fine. It's Better than what was in the camera.

    cheers for the advice,

    I checked out the Rode mic' but I don't think I need the suspension thing and the cheapest I saw it was around 80, so I think I'll stick with the cheaper one, I'll try to pick one up this Saturday.
