Types of Microphones: What Video Microphone Should You Get First?
We get asked a lot about what type of microphone someone new to video should get. I love it when someone asks because it tells me they get it that their on-camera mic won’t help their videos sound and look professional. That’s why I always recommend that you use an external microphone and there are different types that will work in different situations but you may not have the budget to get all of them.
While I was at the NAB Show, I posed this question to Chris Lyons, a rep at the Shure booth.
Watch this short video to see what he recommends you start out with and why and how you can use this mic for different shooting situations.
