"Sound as Good as You Look" - Digital Photography Podcast 261

Audio recording is becoming a bigger part of the photographer's world. Whether we're capturing video with our DSLR or adding voiceover to a slideshow, we need to ensure that our presentations sound as good as they look. In this week's podcast, I discuss the Rode VideoMic Pro Compact Shotgun Microphone, an Audio Technica lapel mic, and the Logitech USB Headset H530that plug directly into your computer. All three device will help you capture clean audio.

I listened to your description of hooking two microphones to your 60D with a splitter cable. You mentioned that it simply 'flattened' the two inputs into two identical mono channels. You have the wrong splitter! I'm not sure what problems running two microphones in parallel (the way you are) will cause, but you simply need a different splitter. Look for a stereo splitter. This will break out each channel into one of the two jacks. This is very simple and works well.

Best regards,
