The audio on this video clip is rubbish
I recently bought a Rode VideoMic Pro with dead cat and have updated my OM-D EM5 to the Mark 2 version. I went out today and recorded the following clip by sticking the mic on top of the camera and hitting record on a windy day. That is, no filter buttons or any alterations were done in preparation, no high/low pass buttons switched and nothing altered on the EM5.
Ignore the lighting and camera position as this was just an audio test in the wind. What bothers me is when the wind blows, right at the moment when I say that the viewer should be able to hear me above the wind (ironically), the audio drops.
I realise I should be using the filter buttons or some setting on the OM-D, but I don't know what. Should I be using low-pass cut out or something? I'm a noob to external mic recording.
