The big Microphone Overview – Which Mic to Choose?

On this video photographer Curtis Judd takes an interesting look at some of the microphones that he has been using over the years (and there are quite a few of them) and gives us his recommendations for different price ranges and different uses.

We have been following some of Judd’s reviews here on LensVid (see link below) and he has been testing quite a few different microphones over the past several years and has a wide perspective on how they compare.

He divided this video into several sections looking at different type microphones and he gave his personal recommendation for each type (in many cases he gave more than one option – usually one high end and one which is more budget oriented or at least less expensive).

On camera style Shotgun Microphone

Pro Shotgun Microphone

Indoor dialogue mic

Lavalier for recording to phone

Lavalier for recording to camera or audio recorder

Voice-over microphone
