No mic is not a problem.A nice video footage usually comes with background music anyway.

As of the is=mage qualiy, could you share your work? or give a pointer to your work that went to CBS, etc.? Thanks.

Sure! But understand - these are not for music background - they are for news B-roll, web sites, and rep iPads

Over-the-air recording of CBS Sunday Morning (my patient clips, CBS did engineer interview)

Stroke Rehab at a Miami skilled nursing facility

Executive interview at the same facility

Rehab of a Parkinson's patient - Alas, US Air broke the ball head on my checked luggage tripod, and it slipped framing on one segment that I didn't pick up until after I left.

Lenses/gear used:

  • Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 XR Di on all head shots (not good for women - MUCH too sharp, as you will see in one video)
  • 11-16mm f2.8 Tokina - my go-to inside lens because its sharp wide open, and rarely have much room
  • 35mm F2 Nikkor - when I have room to back up
  • Rode shotgun mike - otherwise, unknown-brand wired mikes for interviews
  • Two D7000 bodies
