by Eguaogie Eghosa Sep 07, 2021 Views (231)
Your movie will be spoiled no matter how good your images are or how wonderful the aesthetics of your finished film are if they are accompanied by lousy audio. That's why we've compiled this list of the best filming microphones.

An indication of an unskilled or inexperienced video production company is unintentionally captured sound or sound that is simply too soft to be heard comfortably. It will draw attention away from the film's genuine purpose.

Using a microphone during filming will help ensure that the sounds captured are the noises you want to be captured. Because the microphone will be more directional, it will also assist to remove issues like fuzziness and background noise. This allows you to focus on the sound you want to hear rather than the sound you don't want to hear. When capturing material with a lot of interviews, it's very crucial to have a good microphone.

You want individuals watching the video to be able to hear their words clearly. The best way to do so is to film with a microphone.

We'll go through some of the best shotgun and lavalier microphones for filming in this article. Check them out and see which one best fits your work needs as well as your budget.

But first, let me introduce to you Film District Dubai, a world-class company dealing in Film Equipment Rental Dubai, Audio-Visual Equipment Rental Dubai, Photo Booth Rental Dubai, and Camera Rental Dubai.

1. The Sennheiser MKE 600
The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a hyper cardioid microphone for video DSLRs and camcorders. It comes with a shock mount and a foam windshield to help reduce background noise during recording. It picks up sound coming from the direction your camera is looking, just like other super-cardioid mics, and efficiently dampens any noise coming from the sides or back.

The MKE can be powered in one of two ways: by phantom power (if your video camera supports it) or by battery power.
Many professionals recommend this mic for all types of filmmaking circumstances, making it one of the hidden jewels on this list of the finest microphones for filming.

2. The Rode VideoMic Pro
The Rode VideoMic Pro is a condenser shotgun microphone that records and captures broadcast-quality audio. DSLR cameras, camcorders, and audio recorders may all use this microphone.

It's a little microphone that measures around 6 inches long and weighs about 85 grams. This makes it easy to move and place it near enough to record all of the sound and speech you want while remaining off-screen and concealed. The Rode VideoMic Pro has a sturdy mounting system and a lightweight, high-quality cable that reduces audio noise transmission significantly.

The mic has a super-cardioid pickup pattern, which allows it to pick up audio from the front while limiting noise pickup from the sides and back. For a variety of purposes, this makes it perfect.

Powered by a 9-volt battery, this microphone can record up to 70 hours.

One of the most popular DSLR microphones is the Rode VideoMic Pro. This microphone is preferred by many customers who are purchasing their first DSLR.

As you're probably aware, the microphone integrated into your DSLR is awful (unless you prefer tinny noises! ), thus this microphone is an excellent next step up for collecting high-quality audio. This microphone performs exceptionally well in noisy environments.

3. Audio-Technica ATR 3350
This omnidirectional lavalier microphone is a cost-effective design that captures voices and talks well. That's on top of its tiny size and lightweight characteristics, weighing just 6 grams, making it simple to position on your subject in a way that won't interfere with their motions and discreetly capture what they say with little background noise.

It's an excellent choice for those seeking a low-cost option for the finest microphone for filming.

4. The Sennheiser MKE 400
This shotgun microphone's housing is entirely constructed of metal. The Sennheiser MKE 400 includes an integrated shock mount to decrease noise interference. It will fit virtually any camera as long as they have an external microphone input and a standard hot shoe attachment.

The Sennheiser MKE 400 includes a switchable wind noise filter and switchable sensitivity for audio captured across long and short distances, and it is powered by a AAA battery with 300-hour battery life.

5. The Countryman B3
This is a lavalier microphone that can be easily hidden from cameras and live audiences in several colors. Since it is barely 0.2 inches in diameter, it is easy to dissimulate the body of your subject and to record superior audio.

The Countryman B3 is an Omnidirectional microphone that captures extremely little background sound and crystal clear audio. It also features a windshield that is handy when you photograph outside.

Equipment is a compromise between your project objectives and your budgets, like the purchase of everything else in the film and video sector. At different price points, we presented a choice of filmmaking microphones.

If you take care of your equipment now, it will last you a long time. So invest in good equipment and take care of it, and the money you spend now will pay off handsomely.
