Total newbie: what mic for my scenario?
Hi guys. I'm not even sure what to search for in the internet... documentary mic? Interview mic?
Following scenario: my girlfriend is a wedding planner and we will be scouting new venues soon. We want to film her walking around checking out the premises inside and outside. So I will be filming her with a DSLR (well, it is a Lumix G7 to be precise) and she will be commenting something along the lines of "...oh here we have a nice pool. And the garden is quite spacious to have BBQs. ...the bedrooms are in style X..." and so on.
We might also through a couple of interviews with the owners into the mix.
What kind of microphone would I look for?
Something attached to the camera?
Or something attached to her recording to a separate device...?
I'm after something that is easy to use as it is our first recording ever.
