Listen To The Duck
Here is the newest Camera Electronic employee - Ms. Jemima Puddleduck - demonstrating the new Røde Lavalier microphone.
While she is using it as a wing-held mic, you will probably find it most useful as a lapel microphone for interviwes. The DSLR owner who wishes to do video sometimes finds that the in-built microphones can pick up noise from the mechanism or cannot reach out to someone speaking away from the camera position.
If they clip a lapel mic to their speaker and either feed the resulting audio back to the camera with a wire - or elect to record it out at the speaker's position with a small recorder or mobile phone - the sound is much better.
Please note that the kit comes with a waterproof carry case, a dedicated metal lapel clip, and a windshield. The larger furry windshields are referred to as dead cats or dead kittens...this one is a dead shrew.
