still in development :)
Hey Jarred, any news on the button mics? Are there any in particular that are worth mentioning now?
I use The Olympus ME15 with the Epic. That one is working.
Any mike this small is not going to be directional enough to be useful in a documentary situation. It would work fine as scratch audio. There's a reason why shotgun mikes are the size they are. This is no different than why lenses have to be a certain size and weight -- there's only so far you can push physics.
A mike this size is essentially a lavaliere mike, and it has to be placed within a foot or so of the actor's mouth. The best place to mount it is on the actor, not on the camera. This is where wireless mikes come in.
You absolutely can put a wireless mike and transmitter on a reporter, then put the receiver on the camera. No problem there -- it's done thousands of times a day, around the world, by news crews and documentary filmmakers. But I wouldn't rely on a tiny camera-mounted mike for anything crucial. A shotgun mike... maybe, for B-roll or background footage.
Are these available yet? Anyone find something else, I really need scratch audio.
Will this work?
No. We wish it would...
For sync sound click track, non professional audio just audio that is used to sync up with I made this little inexpensive mic.
Full disclaimer it was Matts idea sorry cant remember his last name.
Works cool very light very sweet and love it.
any news on this or is there any other elegant small mic solution?
