Well Hello there my friends!
I have always takes sound for granted in my videos, as a skateboarder I feel that the visual side of things was always way more important.
But as I branch out into more 'speaking' type videos I thought it is probably about time that I upgraded the audio side of things so my D.tube videos sound clearer and better!
Today I am testing this £20 Dual headed Lav mic from BOYA, to see if even someone like me can benefit from this little gadget.
It actually took me 3 attempts to get these clips!!! So I was not off to a great start there!
Also using it on my iPhone seems to be a bit of a waste as this 'dual mic', mic produces a stereo sound which when recorded into a stereo recorder will give you 1 mic is all on the left channel and the other all on the right. Meaning I can mix those channels seperately.
This all came about as I plan on starting interview/podcast type videos in the near future and just had to get the ball rolling with this mic (Even if I end up with a better one before my famous friends start showing up!! Lol)
Anyway, here is a quick test under a few different conditions, comparing this BOYA BY-M1DM to the on-board camera mic of my crap little HD camera.
Thank you for watching! I hope if nothing else, you feel inspired to have a more serious think about the audio in YOUR videos!!
See you all again soon!!!
LOVE is ALL
