Shotgun microphones are used to capture sounds such as dialog in film and video productions, for “spot” miking specific areas on sets, stages and installations, and for creating Foley and sound effects.

One way to improve the quality of your in-camera audio when shooting video with an HDSLR camera is to utilize an external adapter box (called a Camcorder XLR Adapter). These gizmos attach to the base of your camera and enable you to connect multiple XLR microphones to your camera’s lowly mini-plug mic input.

When people complain about modern music, they often cite obnoxious, unnatural pitch correction as one of the main culprits for their dislike. Whether you agree with this assertion or not, it's important to understand that some of the tools that are used for pitch correction can also sound as natural and emotive as a stark and unprocessed Joni Mitchell recording from 1971.

When you’re operating a boompole to capture dialog for a video or film production indoors, it’s often best not to use a shotgun microphone. The kind of microphone that you want to use is a small diaphragm condenser with either a hypercardioid or a supercardioid pick-up pattern. More specifically, there are only a handful of microphone models that are preferred for this task.
