How Important Is Audio In Your Videos?


As I demonstrate in the video, sound quality is really overlooked when we consider filming and yet it’s so important to get it right. Getting a good mic and bringing as close as possible to your mouth is vital. I suggest either using a Rode Video Mic Pro on an extension lead and boom (assuming your DSLR camera has a mic input), or better still a setup that records externally.

Here are the links to the products you need for both scenarios.

There are plenty of cheap, unbranded alternatives but Rode are an industry leading brand that I use and am happy to recommend.
