Zoom Recorder | Connecting Pro Mics to DSLR Part 2: Monitor Mixer Setup

 

In this video I’ll show you how to setup the Mix Monitor to select which microphone channels you want to route to your camera. The ReZoom H5 will record the XLR professional microphones onto separate mono tracks, record the L/R stereo microphones onto another track and send only mics 1 and 2 to the camera. Many other recorders could be setup in a similar way.

RODE VideoMic Pro Plus | Is it for YOU?

The new RODE VideoMic Pro Plus has some really cool upgrades.
The mic is fitted to both a Canon 80D and also a Sony RX10 and in this video I look at the new features but consider closely some of the issues raised by recent reviewers. This shotgun mic is setup on a boom for a lot of the dialogue and setup on the camera as you would use in the field.

Limited to one audio input on your camera? In this video I’ll show you how to connect an XLR microphone to your camera by making a simple lead that will create two separate channels. With this lead you can connect another microphone to give you the option of a backup mic or second microphone for interviews.

Zoom H5 | Set-up as an Audio Interface

Setting up your Zoom recorder as an digital audio interface to improve the quality of your mobile phone recording. Many analogue inputs on mobile phones are quite noisy so using the digital input on the phone and taking advantage of the superior pre-amps on the latest Zoom recorders gives you an abundance of options to connect microphones.
