I'm going to be location shooting for a 2 week period with a Canon xm2. Amongst other locations, I will be on a building site & am worried about getting good sound.
I'll be on my own, so will have to take care of all image & sound aspects myself. I need to know what kind of affordable sound equipment I should get in order to be able to cover both interviews (some kind of clip-on mic?) and location sound, where I'll have to be able to pick a voice out over loud background noise. I have a dm50 but this hardly makes any difference to the camera mic & also cannot be taken off the camera body. I would prefer to have more control over where I can direct the microphone.
Unfortunately, I don't know very much about sound & am worried about getting it clear & loud enough.
