i m not an expert but it does sound like the cam auto adjustment.
does it continue to be distorted if the loud noise is atleast a few seconds long? or does it adjust?

maybe try moving the mice back a couple feet?

ME66 vs AT897 ???

I've been looking for a shotgun mic under $500, and the choice comes down pretty much between ME66 and AT897...
Can anyone compare those two models for me?
It'll be used with my dvx100a...and to make indie films...
I'd really appreciate a detailed review of both mics, in terms of performance, funtionality, durability, etc...
and also please make me a recommendation considering that the price does not matter as long as it's under $500...
Thanks~^^

need microphone advice

hi. i am a videographer. when shooting weddings, i like to be around bride and groom while they make preperations before the actual ceremony (getting hair done, fitting on dress, etc.). using the onboard mic which came with my sony pd150, doesn't really do the job when trying to capture dialogue.
i DO have a uhf wireless mic device. so i was thinking of placing the transmitter hooked up to a microphone, in the area where the people are talking, freeing me of having to stay very close to them in order to record what they are saying. what microphone would you suggest i hook up to the transmitter to get good clean (as much as possible) dialogue?

the smaller mic, the better. i don't want it to stick out too much.

thanks

I REALLY like the new AT 899, it's a great mic for direct placement. You could also use one of the AT boundary mics with the quad element.
A Sony ECM 55 would be great here too.

M-Audio Mic guide

A guide to using and choosing mics from m-audio. Very well done, if I do say so myself.

Mikemuff or Mini Windjammer???

I just got my Azden SGM-1X today and I am looking for some better wind protection.

Due to a limited buget, I have decided between these two "furrys" that fit over the standard foam windscreen.

Are they basically the same, or is one much better than the other?

Thanks for your help.

I just bought a Mike Muff for my GL2, and it fits great.

Let me add that I am trying to reduce the pickup of camera noise with a piece of thin foam rubber (adhesive on one side) cut to cover the bottom of the onboard mic. The Mike Muff fits great with or without the foam rubber stuck to the bottom of the mic.

Field Laptop Recording, Echo Indigo IO vs. Behringer BCA2000

I am planning to due some dual system sound shoots (specifically for a 48 hour film festival) and considering laptop recording.

I have a Thinkpad t41p with a 7200 rpm drive, plenty fast for recording audio but of course has build in crappy sound,

Consider either a Echo Indigo IO http://www.echoaudio.com/Products/IndigoIO/index.php or the new Behringer BCA http://www.behringer.com/BCA2000/index.cfm?lang=ENG but can't decided which is more usable.

The Indigo's huge advantage is size - no carrying around a mixing box and drivers are running at around 2ms latency for 24/96 two channel recording. However, only 1 1/8" minijack for input - so I would have to carry around my Samson Mixpad 4 for phantom power, XLR and monitoring.

The Behringer unit could replace the Indigo/Samson combo but it's a bulky box and though it uses USB 2.0 for low latency, it's too new to see reviews out on latency performance.

I know it's too much to ask for a Cardbus card with snap on XLR and phantom power, but I'm torn between which setup is more usable in the field for a two-man sound crew (mixer and boom).

used sound equipment

Does anyone now where I can find sound equipment like zeppelins, boom poles, etc. used? It seems like there should be some floating around somewhere?

Thanks,

Michael

Good place to order my Oktava MC012

After much research... I went ahead and ordered a Beachtek DXA-8 from B & H. I will be purchasing an Oktava MC-012 to go with it. B & H doesn't sell the Oktava.

I want to go to the best place to order my mic, and am sure someone will have a good reputable place to order from!

Thanks for all the advice... I put it to good use, as you can see by my choices!

I'd actually go to the sound room and pay the extra for the piece of mind.
http://sound-room.com/customer/home.php?cat=2

The Oktava with a cardoid cap is 193US and the kit with a cardoid, hyper and omni is $299.

You could also try www.avr.ca I paid the equivilent of 195 us a kit but they'de be shipping from Canada to the US.

The Beach is a good choice.

Shure KSM32

I'm thinking about buying a KSM32 to mic a guitar I have. I'm wondering if this mic would work well with my VX2K camera. It is a really nice condenser mic for studio recording, vocals and instruments.

The Shure KSM32 is a pretty decent mic, but it will not work with your
VX2K without an adapter . . . one that provides phantom power.

In what situations are you thinking about using it w/ your camera?

Ebay is probably about the best, but because stuff like blimps and poles in
good conditon are always in demand, they usually go as part of an
entire kit which normally includes the mic the seller really wants to broom.

There's a *mangled Rycote kit* on Ebay now for under $100.
