Because I intend to record alot of audio with the HD video from the Canon 5D Mk 2, the built in microphone within the camera is insufficient for my needs. Fortunately Canon have the foresight to include an external microphone jack which means any 3.5mm jack mic can be plugged into to improve the audio.
I’ve gone for the Rode Videomic. I’ve only just purchased it today from Amazon so i wont’ be able to do tests just yet but keep your “ears” open for an upcoming post with video/audio examples.
Update, I’ve just posted a very short video showing some of the subtle differences of the VideoMic.
However, futher exploration of YouTube has revealed slightly longer audio tests using various settings on the Rode VideoMic. See what you think from this chap. Personally, I think the LOW PASS filter setting is more pleasant. I’m not entirely sure what it does though. If you do, then please leave a comment.
