[ Sound ]
Your camera will have a built-in mic, but it’s far better to use a dedicated external mic for sound recording. Such mics are batterypowered and can cost around £100. Usually they will mount on top of your camera, provided it has an audio input, and send sound directly to the video being recorded. Alternatively, you can connect the mic to an iPhone or a portable recorder. If you need to record sound to a device other than the camera, sync it with your video later in software – though this can take time and patience.
