Re: Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter Out of stock

Thank you my eiting program does allow RAW.  Also I've found a lavalier mic with send receive capability to eliminate background noise as the trade we are attempting to teach many times will have video shot with machines running in the background.

 

My company has invested a couple million dollars building and bringing in equipment for the training center.  It's just a shame the missing link comes from GoPro which has been perfect for minimizing classroom time by the use of video to get out to the hands on portion of the training which is the focus.  The students walk away with tech training manuals but class time to cover the material takes a fair bit of time.  I was figuring if a picture tells a thousand words a video will tell a million and get us to the hands on portion which is quite difficult in many cases.

Thanks I will look into the Zoom H1n and TasCam DR-05.

Re: Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter Out of stock

Good luck to you. I think you will be much better off with a portable external mic. You may even want to get two. One fro the front of the class and one centered over the students. This way you can get the best audio during Q/A. If you layer the audio (you can lower, but I don't recommend muting, the db on the centered mic and raise it only when needed) you can get a much richer audio experience. For the background noise, you can isolate it with some sample clips and easily eliminate it, even if it is recorded. I personally use Audacity (free) but it does take a bit to learn it to exploit its full potential.

As far as the external recorders are concerned, I personally use the H1n, but in other forums that I participate in the consensus seems to be that the TasCam is slightly better. The H1n works great for me, but you might want to do a little research before choosing one (or get both and return one if you don't need it).

Re: Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter Out of stock

Thank you!  Looking into each of them as this gets posted.  I also like the mention of Audacity which is mentioned during a turorial for the video editing program that I use.  I'll look at this as well.
