SERIES: SOUND 101: Get the best sound quality for your business video on a DIY Budget
When thinking about shooting a video for our business, that’s often the top three things we think about.
Can I see them? Does the camera work? Ready? Go!
The thing is, many businesses are looking to shoot video quickly and on a DIY budget. That means using technology that they are already own, rather than buying or renting equipment.
We already have a camera, smartphone or laptop with internal mic. Why get an external? Is it that important?
Internal microphones are simple creations easily obstructed. Even a light breeze or just brushing the casing can cause sounds like an earthquake on the audio track.
So how do you get clean, crisp audio on a DIY budget?
This series will offer ideas that cover both low-cost equipment and practical steps you can do without buying anything.
We’ll cover it in three areas:
• For Webinar/Screencasting
• For Shooting with an iPhone or Smartphone
• For Shooting Video with a DLSR
