Lives for gear
DirkP's Avatar

yes, the audio from an external recorder is far better. but: there is a huge difference using a cheap mic directly into the camera and using quality gear directly to the camera. i use a mixpre recording to the internal card and feeding the mic input of my sony alpha cam. the camera audio is quite good. reason: i set the record level on the cam to the lowest possible level and set the level on the mixpre. makes a huge difference (less noisy, less limiting from the cam).
sometimes i‘m too lazy to sync and just keep the cam-audio. so a decent mic not needing much gain might improve the audio quality a lot while keeping the setup simple.
