While we generally recommend getting closer to the subject and using a dual-system solution to avoid recording the camera's noisy preamps, in many one-shooter, run-and-gun situations, that's not always possible. This video is designed to give you an idea of what some of these microphones sound like in such situations. We begin by listening to the poor audio recorded from the built-in mic on a DSLR, followed by examples of how six camera-mountable microphones sound, individually. The featured microphones include: Polsen SCL-1075, RØDE VideoMic Go, sE Electronics ProMic Laser, Sennheiser MKE 400, Shure VP83, and the Senal SCS-98.

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?
