In my Audio & Video learning over the years, I discovered this little nugget to improve audio quality when recording video. I’ve only recently remembered to create a video on it.
Here is my setup: Sony HDR-SR11 HD video camera with a 1/8 microphone input, an unbalanced lapel microphone with a 1/8 mono connector, & the AC/DC power cable for the camera. This is a general problem with unbalanced microphones and when transformers are in close proximity. Take a listen to the video to see the improvement in action.
* For better video & audio quality watch the 720p HD version.
