http://vimeo.com/1080128 Here is another video from Videopedia. This time the Videopedia crew has brought tips about microphones for cameras (Camcorders). When you are recording a special momment in your life, like your childs first birthday party for example, the sound quality is usually very poor. This is because the camcorder you were using was either part of the camera or was bad quality. If you ask a professional, they will direct you to a microphone over $1500. This video explains that good quality microphones are actually fairly cheap. The video also explains the pros and cons of diffrent kinds of microphones and actually recorded the video using the described camcorders.A tip that was mentioned in the video was to focus on the filming environment as well as the proximity. This video was very well done and should be watched by anyone who has any interest at all in camcorder qualities.
