Re: Audio for Video, utilizing the xlr ports on a pro video cam

The microphones used are almost as varied as the many situations that are being captured.

For static interviews, I use wired (mono) lavalier mics. For moving interviews, a wireless lav mic (but the quality isn't as good.)

For outdoor dialog or speaking, a Rode NTG-2 shotgun on a boom pole. For "run and gun" shooting when there's no time to set up, I use the Rode on my camera. For indoor "voice-over" I use a Rode NT1a.

Each different type of mic has its own unique characteristics which make it more suitable for a particular situation/setup. Not to mention that each brand and price category are different, too. So, it's a complicated subject.
