The Tascam isn't connected to the camera at all, my camera doesn't have an audio jack. Instead I run my mic into the tascam and then transfer the recorded audio to my computer.
Yes, the audio I posted here was actually recorded using the super cardiod setting(the mic does not have hyper cardiod, only super and regular.) I have tried using the tascam's mics, but only to test out on a conversation between two people as it sat between them on a kitchen table. I'll try using it on my boom pole, maybe that audio will come out better for me. I'll also try out the Nady/tascam setup a few more times, maybe I just need a little more practice.
Thanks so much for your time/advice!!
Thanks so much for your help! I'll definitely take a look into the two mics you posted here. Until i purchase a new one, Is there a way to boost the dB manually? For example, changing the recording volume and levels on the tascam? Or since the mic itself is too low am I out of luck?
Thanks for your reply! Yeah, I tried new batteries first because I thought the older one might be dead.
Here is a clip from the aforementioned audio.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxEc8ojtTeoXNVctTHNWRWtFUGc/view?usp=sh...
