Here is what I have learnt.
Good audio can make a good sounds.
Shotgun mic can pick up sound all background.
Shotgun mic can be used for movies and news.
The case on top of the mic blocks out the wind and keep it covered.
If you are in a brick hall way the sound can bounce of the walls.
Try and not aim at hard backgrounds.
Always have headphones when you are using the camera.
When you are not using it make sure the mic is of and the camera.
The switch at the back needs to be in the middles witch ( the light should be green )
Check with the teachers when the mic is on.
Make sure your camera flap in open.
Make sure the mic is tight to the camera ( get the teacher to check )
Things you need is a tripod, Camera, and a shotgun mic.
