Best Cheap Shotgun MIC for DSLR

by eng.izajAugust 2, 2017

A shotgun microphone.

Audio quality is paramount. There really is little wiggle room for messing up the sound on your videos. If you don’t take care, pay attention and record the best sound effects, the best voice clarity and volume, and the best ambient sound (when needed), you risk losing your audience.

Videos are about capturing attention, and, at their best, telling compelling and interesting stories. Sure, the camera is important (here’s 5 of my top DSLR and mirrorless picks for shooting video), but there are two even more important ingredients: audio and… you. The latter I can’t do much to help out, other than to say practice, practice, practice. Watch others’ work as much as possible, and learn. Gear is all well and good, but how you use it is why someone like Martin Scorsese is a master. Skill, intuition, experience. While we can’t all become Oscar-winning filmmakers, I highly encourage you first focus on audio in your videos.
