Odd and Ends for March 2, 2015
A weekly review of things not strictly related to current art and film projects. This week; using the Zoom H1 field recorder as a cheap alternative to a wireless lav mic system.
I have several film project either underway or in the planning stage. Each project requires the use of a wireless lav microphone in order to capture good sound from the talent.
Using a gun and run approach to film making means to dedicated sound person to operate a boom pole. Good wireless lav mics can cost anywhere from $800 to $2000 depending on the system and the number of lav mics it can handle.
Zoom H1 Field Recorder $109
Smart Lav mic $69
Rode SC3 Adapter $41
Sound recorded in this video is from the above equipment.
