Q&A: “What mic do you use to record your videos?”
Hi Vesper! What mic do you use to record your videos?
hi anon. 🙂
i’ve been using a RØDE VideoMic Pro for the past 10 months because for awhile i lived in a very noisy apartment and the street noise in all of my videos finally got to me. no matter what i did, the camera’s built-in mic was just too good at picking up ambient noise from outside my apartment.

generally speaking, external mics tend to be unnecessary, especially when just starting out on YouTube, because built-in mics tend to be decent these days. that said, if you do find yourself needing an external mic, there’s no reason to fork out the kind of cash that i did for mine. there are lots of other decent mics with good cost-performance, i’m just ridiculous, so…
