only 12-100 reduce focus noise for video

Hi, I thought I would just yet ask, but I think nothing I can do. I bought comnica v30 lite to see if I can reduce focusing noise during video taping but this mic still picks up.

If I put on manual focus, no noise but not always convenient.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

External sound recorder?

You could add the external recording afterwards in your video editor. It generally results in better audio too, when you place the recorder close to the subject.

Re: only 12-100 reduce focus noise for video

Looking at the specs, which say this:

SUPER-CARDIOID MICROPHONE: CVM-V30 LITE shotgun microphone is giving excellent off-axis rejection for desired sounds, which can effectively reduce the noise of the surrounding environment to be picked up.

It seems like the mic isn't directional enough. I wonder if it would help to put it on an L bracket to get it farther from the camera and lens. Otherwise I'd look for a better shotgun mic.

Good luck!

You might consider...

... trying an L-bracket such as :

This gets your right hand off of, and the microphone further away from, the camera.

This noticeably reduces transmission of operator handling and lens motor noise to your recordings.

Relatively inexpensive and doesn't add much weight.
