Most of the good DSLR camera’s have 1080p 30p (frames per second FPS), video, that you can use your lenses with to get broadcast quality, crisp high definition and smooth video, however mostly because of constraints of space, the inbuilt audio sucks. All DSLR brands have poor audio and its really just a reference point for sound. The experts tell me that audio is the makes or breaks great video.
So in order to experiment with video on the Nikon D610 I have purchased a RØDE VideoMic GO. The sound pickup area focuses directly in front of the microphone and reduces other surrounding sounds, ensuring that your subject is isolated from distracting background noise. The VideoMic GO has no switches or settings and is powered by the camera's external microphone input. More to come in later posts . . .
