I've just watched Gordon's external microphone test and I'm wondering what forum members think is the best value mikes for the FZ150 ?
I would favour a Stereo mike over mono.
Sound travels in a straight line, like light from a torch and it seems a bit unusual for the built in mike to be facing upwards and not forwards where it would point towards the sounds being filmed -a bit like walking down a dark street and pointing the torch upwards!!
How does the Panasonic external mike compare to the Rode(s)?
I've bought the camera but it hasn't arrived yet, I've got a wireless remote and I notice one end has 4 segments- this looks to be the camera end?
I've also bought a short lead with a normal mini jack socket and the smaller panasonic size jack, but this only has the usual 3 segments- I'd rather use that than a converter plug which has the possibility of damaging the camera if knocked - I'm assuming that the 4 segments are something to do with the remote and not for microphones?
I also want to get a wireless lapel mike and would appreciate any suggestions for that
