shotgun Mic’s

This lesson of film school we used shotgun mics here’s some information on how to use them


first off here’s what a shotgun mic looks like

as you can see it has a long cylinder as the boom filter and the end looks similar to a shotgun that’s where the name is from

Make sure that they are turned on


Make sure you charge them the right way or it may damage the camera and the charging plug


try not to touch the foam on the microphone while recording or it will make an annoying sound while watching

the video

shot gun mics are directional but they pick up a lot of background noise and pick up a lot of wind sound


if you are in a room without background noise or echo’s this microphone is ideal for that
