Audio -- another learning curve
Good Audio is a beast - and either it's there - or it isn't - so I've decided to get a handle on it. But - I don't have any decent Mics -- other than my RODE Video Mic. I always thought it was a bit huge - so I started some research for either dedicated for the Olympus LS-7 or iPhone.
I had the thought of a dedicated iPhone mic - and it seems RODE is the only one producing such -- http://www.rodemic.com/mics/smartlav
The RODE SmartLav -- from what I've seen, it seems to be "ok", yet I'm not convinced - hit the youtube's - some are good and some are bad.
So - instead of a dedicated device I decided to get a decent regular LAV -- from Giant Squid Audio http://www.giant-squid-audio-lab.com/gs/gs-mono.html
He's a cottage business, but is off the charts for good bulletproof gear -- did I just say bulletproof -- oh, yeah... that's right -- his stereo lavs survived my tour in Baghdad. But I digress... "they never got shot, for what it's worth"
This convinced me -
Then -- I decided to pull one of these - iphone mic adapter - no power needed... boom ! http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-mic-ecm.htm
Why -- 'cuz I want to start pulling some good audio, either with iPhone or externally with my Oly LS-7 -- and then layering on video.
Now onward to homebrewaudio and to figure out Reaper.
