I made my iPhone headphones into a smartLav+( with a big Minus).
It seems to work better than some cheap Chinese microphones, I will use that temporarily, while I try and learn to get the most of it.
Then I'll probably invest some $300-500 on wireless lavs, which should do the work just fine.
Thanks for your great reply!
Thanks for the reply, but I never said I want to get "pro quality" from $12 lav mic.
I also mentioned that I own Rode NTG4+ and Zoom H6 ( my camera setup is Canon 650D and Sony a7s), so you can see that video = audio over here.
If I were capable of owning RED, I wouldn't be asking for $12 quick solution, would I?
I was hoping that the mediocre quality lav that I'll buy combined with my shotgun would do me good and won't ruin the overall audio quality.
Also, I'm still learning. I'd rather destroy projects now, than in 5 years when I'm doing something of great importance.
And what is the best way to learn the downsides of audio if not with bad microphone ?
Thanks for the harsh reply, I really do appreciate replies like this one, it hits you back in reality!
That's the best tip I've ever got for video.
Thanks for the solution, but how did you connect lav mic to the recorder? You probable used 10m wire or ?
I've found an even cheaper solution, I cut my iphone headphones off and converted it's mic into lav mic. It's not the best out there, but it serves its purpose.
Wow, that solution seems like a bit complicated when working outside.
I renamed my iPhone earphones into a improvised lav.
I will work like that until I get wireless lavs, after that we'll see.
So much to spend, but money aren't coming as easy!
