Capturing Audio for Your DSLR Shoot

Part of the Digital SLR Video & Filmmaking For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Remember, even when using a DSLR camera to shoot video, the better your movie sounds, the better it looks. Take this advice to make your audio the best it can be:

  • Try not to use the built-in microphone on your DSLR camera.

  • Use a stick microphone when you’re close to the subject.

  • An on-camera microphone works well to capture ambient sound.

  • Bring a lavaliere microphone for sit-down interviews.

  • Always monitor the audio with headphones.
