This category includes all video microphones for sale from Outdoorphoto. It has become very popular to shoot video on DSLR cameras and although the video quality is great, the audio often suffers because of the low quality of built-in microphones. This has made DSLR hotshoe mics a necessity. Rode, Sennheiser and Hahnel are the brands of microphones we stock. All of these brands manufacture very high quality video microphones with good resolution of detail and low-cut filters for cutting out wind-noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor.. As the name suggests, DSLR hotshoe mics fit onto the hotshoe of the camera making it perfect for use during on-location shooting or for shooting interviews.
This category also includes various shotgun mics as well as studio-quality standalone audio recorders.
