I’m still waiting on the other two, but i’ll have a total of three Zoom H1’s and still my Zoom H4n. I have ordered more Audio-Technica ATR3350 Lav microphones which is a Mono mic (not stereo), and if you’re looking into those cheaper shotgun microphones, those would be mono as well. If you’re lucky [...]

30Aug Cheap DSLR Shotgun Microphone


Tweet

Under $40 dollar Shotgun Microphone EG1
Just by using a microphone away from the camera and closer to your subject things generally will sound much better. In that case almost any microphone should suffice to getting decent audio. The most popular microphones used by DSLR shooters are the Rode VideoMic and the Senheisser MKE-400.

Thanks for Mako for sending in images of his DSLR rig using Thorlabs RA90 – 90 degree clamps with locks. These $10 dollar ninety-degree clamps are a great way to start building your different rigs or support structures, but if you take a peek around ThorLabs ‘post accessories’ [...]

Yet another video where I try to cram as much gear tests into one quick take. Here i’m using the Zoom H1 recorder with Audio-Technica ATR3350 powered Lav mic talking about the Yongnuo RF-602 Flash Triggers. Hey, I might as well get it out of the way since I haven’t said much about them after [...]

29Aug Cheap $35 China Shotgun Microphone


Tweet

Thanks to Alex for sending this in. I’m sure we’ve all seen this cheap Shotgun microphone before, but there wasn’t much information about it’s performance. For around $35.00 dollars shipped, this video test shows that the HTDZ HT-81 Shotgun microphone is still better than using your onboard camera microphone. The microphone states it can also [...]

27Aug Friday’s Mail Bag – Audio-Technica LAV and Letus DSLR


Tweet

Today’s morning mail bag drops in with some nice surprises. I finally received the two Audio-Technica ATR3350 powered Lavalier Microphones for my Zoom H1. This will be an interesting test. I was already impressed with the Zoom H1 built in mics when doing this BiGeye review, but I was in a controlled environment. We’ll see [...]

Tweet

click image to find shoe mounts
Ok, someone asked about mounting the Zoom H1 on your camera’s hot shoe. This is cool, it’s a compact setup, but I highly suggest that you first grab a $12.00 dollar L Bracket or two which will not only move the Zoom’s Mic a few inches away from the camera [...]

27Aug Quick Review – LCW BiGeye Profinder DSLR view finder


Tweet
Trying to kill several birds with one stone, here’s a review of the LCW BiGeye Profinder. I’m using my 3 piece 800w lighting kit, and audio was recorded using the new Zoom H1 audio recorder from the built in microphones. Sound is awesome. So hopefully you get an idea of the Zoom H1 audio sample, [...]

Well the Zoom H1 did meet it’s release date, but didn’t meet the demands of the retailers. Few shipments went out and there’s still a ton of people waiting in line for new products to arrive, including me! I got a hold of one, but [...]

26Aug The Q-Strap Quick Camera Strap


Tweet
Thursday mail bag continues….
It’s called the Q-Strap. Some people are touchy about using the word ‘clone’ or ‘replica’, so i’ll just say this resembles very very closely, almost exactly similar to the Black Rapid RS-4 Camera Strap. Since this is ‘comparable’ to the R-Strap the Q-Strap (quick strap) runs less than half the price. The [...]
