How to get good audio for DSLR – Rycote host UK workshops with Phil Bloom and myself

Interviewing Tony Blair with a 5DmkII with assistant Xiaoli Wang and a boom mic (out of shot)

I get a lot of questions about audio for DSLR and on July 7th I’ll be giving a seminar about the subject in Bristol, showing the various practical approaches I take to get good audio for my real world videos. DSLR video guru Phil Bloom will be there too, talking about how he records his audio using dual system sound. It’s £30 for the day and there are other sessions as well from experts. If you are in the UK I think it will be well worth the trip.

Below are the details from Rycote:

Objective for the day: to demystify the black art of audio, through a seminar programme and hands-on experience with industry experts in a demonstration area.

Through a series of seminars and hands-on experience with industry experts in a demonstration area, we will address a range of issues, including:

– Recording directly to the camera vs. recording separate audio?
– How to record audio in different scenarios?
– How do I eliminate wind noise from my recordings? What about handling noise?
– Portable recorders, Lavalier mics, Wireless microphones – which one should I use?
– Guide tracks? Reference audio?
