Video Transcript :
Were out on the road today doing a test of the Kodak Zi8 Camera. At the moment I’ve got the onboard mic being used and as you can tell, its pretty loud, pretty noisy in the vehicle that I’m recording in. But were going to show you a microphone that you can use when you have to get out on the road to do your little “Run and Gun” shoots.
Its called the Countryman Earset Microphone and weve found that when your out on the road in a very noisy envirenment, like for example at a sporting event, or in a vehicle doing a recording like I am today, its excellent for cutting out all the background noise that you wouldn’t ordinarilly want in your recording.
I’m just going to go around this roundabout, and once we do we’ll do the changeover to the Countryman Microphone and let you see the difference between using the onboard microphone that comes with the Kodak Zi8 and the audio you get if you use a professional earset microphone.
I’m just going to point to it now… Its this one that you see attatched to my ear. It’s not plugged in at the moment, but were going to do that for you right now, so you can see the difference between the onboard audio, and the audio you get from using the Countryman Earset Microphone. Were going to plug that in for you right now.
Ok… straight away you would have noticed a difference to the sound. It’s a lot quieter now, even thou the noise in the background hasn’t really changed. It’s still pretty noisy, except this microphone is very good at cancelling out background noise and just giving a sort of like priorty to the speakers voice. And thats why we like to use the Countryman Earset Microphone when were doing these “Run and Gun” shoots out on the road in the van.
Its also good for when your doing recordings at sporting events where you’ve got a lot of background noise, a lot of cheering, a lot of noise from the crowd. It has the ability to cut a lot of that background noise and give priorty to the speaker, which is why I like this microphone.
Its called the Countryman Earset Microphone, its an excellent microphone, and when your out on the road doing “Run and Gun” shoots in a Van… its perfect.
Thats all for today. Thankyou for watching Pro Blog Tips video tutorials. My name is Jaron, we’ll speak to you again soon.More Related Articles From This Website...
