Azden is showcasing some new wares at this year’s NAB convention, aimed directly at on-site recording. The SGM-250 shotgun mic employs a metal-alloy body with a newly designed microphone element aimed at doing what you want a good shotgun mic to do: provide a wide frequency response with low noise and high SPL handling, all while rejecting side image, all while operating on either phantom power or a single battery. The company has also unveiled an update to its popular FMX-42 with the FMX-42u, which now features analog-to-digital conversion for providing backups.

With the growing popularity of using iPads and iPhones to record video, more and more people are running into the same problem- how to get good sound. While the camera is great and the built-in mic is probably fine for phone calls and FaceTime, videographers demand more professional options. In this video, Rob from B&H takes us through some third-party audio solutions to consider, from entry-level consumer up to ENG-grade professional gear. The video explores both wireless systems like the Azden WMS-PRO+I and Sennheiser EW 100 G3 as well as hard-wire options including the Polsen MO-PL1 and Rode VideoMic GO. Since the mic input on the iPad and iPhone wasn't designed for pro audio gear, the video also explores some adapters and mounts to consider when rigging up your mic, and delves into the issues of audio monitoring. Do you monitor through the iPad/iPhone and live with delay or monitor through your audio equipment—assuming it has a headphone out—and risk not knowing what levels are being recorded?
