  • Microphones and Video Lighting For EOS 60D

    Hey Guys. I am currently owning 7D,60D and 550D. I want to buy a microphone and Video light. But i am not sure which / what brand to purchase. I know RODE microphones are the best but my budget does not allow me to purchase it.

    Please help me with which microphone and lightings are good.
    Is this videolight good ?

    My budget for both items above

    Microphone : RM100-300
    Lightings : RM100-200

      Shawn, the Chinese made LED lights are a real bargain. I couldn't vouch whether it will last very long but I bought a few from Digicolor and honestly they perform as well as Lite Panels from US costing 7 times more.. So yeah, I think you'll be ok with the lights.

      As for audio I would actually recommend a real good mic. Bear in mind that audio is half of the package when you shoot video. When you spend so much on the camera, audio would at least require equal attention don't you think?

      I would recommend at least the Zoom H1 at around 450.. If you can't stretch the budget, I suppose your option is to save up or just get the el cheap brand but I think you'll be quite disappointed.

              Bro Kamarul,

              I think there is too much hissing noise coming from my camera built in audio recorder even with a good mic attached to it.. Do you have any suggestion to improve the sound quality further? Have you try Magic Lantern http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/M..._Firmware_Wiki

              I am going to venture into this the next free time I get..

                  I use Zoom H1 and found that this is the best entry level, condenser, stereo field audio recorder. I bought it @ CKMusic http://www.ckmusic.com.my/webshaper/...roductItem=454

                  Then coupled with Audio-Technica ATR-3350 clip mic, it perform great in interview type of situation.

                  great stuff!

                    I have never used magic latern. I contemplated using it and then came the firmware upgrade..

                    As for the audio.. there is nothing much you can do with it. You can try lowering the level down on camera to reduce it but the reality is the audio circuitry on-board the camera is of pretty low quality. Even if you use good quality external mic, you will improve it but the limit is still the audio recording capability of the camera itself. That is why its best to use external recorder.

                        So The best way is to get the MCP as soon as possible.. where there is independent audio inputs.. thanks bro kamarul.. I will definitely visit your studio soon..

                            Read reviews about the H1. It is a magical wonder. Will get one also in due time. Bently Music has in stock. RM398. Heading that way soon.

                              Read the spec... The zoom h2 has dual xy mic... It said better than xy mic. Anyone can share the different?
