00:03 – Sound setup update
00:26 – Getting a closer look
01:17 – Let me know what you think of my new videos
James here. I’ve just been filming today and I normally get questions about sound quality because it’s gone up dramatically. I’m getting a more distant shot now with my DSLR so you can see the Canon 60D here. In the background there is the boom mic. So I’ve got a NTG3 microphone, riding on a boom pole that is just above my head so we go down there and have a look at that in a little more detail.
Camera and Mic
So there’s the camera and the cable is running along there up to the stand to the grip to the Rode boom pole to the NTG3 mic. And on the floor is a thick carpet that’s going to absorb the sound as the mic points down.
And when I stand down here, I put my toes in the marker, I always use a marker, I’m using a nice car magazine and right up here is the mic and that is just near my head and just above the top of the shot and this is what’s getting a good sound.
But today, I’m just using my large mic and the iPhone to record this particular video so you’re not listening to this particular microphone that we’re looking at but that’s how it works.
So I hope you’ve enjoyed that little microphone update. And let me know what you think of the sound of my newest videos on SuperFastBusiness.com. I’m James Schramko. Catch up with you next time.
