I have an inexpensive Sony camcorder (Handycam Model HDR-CX580 with 20.4 mega pixels) and RODE shotgun microphone (not sure of the model, but it's older and uses a 9 volt battery). I also have a wireless lapel microphone transmitter and receiver from Azden and a Blue Snowball iCE microphone. I am using Audacity for audio mixes and Camtasia for video editing.
I doubt that I can get approval for much additional funding to upgrade our equipment. What suggestions do you have to improve the quality of our videos? Should we purchase a Zoom H4N audio recorder? Can I tie that into the public address system at work with some time of connector or converter? I would appreciate your advice!
Did you hear about the nearsighted female filmmaker who backed into a wind machine turbine on the set? Disaster!
