Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. This week we hit two small snags. I know we will be able to overcome these challenges, but for now…we are all devastated.
So much for my dramatic flare.
Here is the problem…please let me know if you have come across this same issue and how you have dealt with it.
SOUND! The microphone that is built into the camera we are using is not as capable as the zoom feature on the lens. Meaning, when you film from a distance, you cannot hear the voices very well.
A friend suggested something called a “remote microphone”, has anyone ever used such a gizmo? I have been looking at local tech shops but it may be a specialty item.
Please let me know if you have any ideas.
Also, his particular camera does not like to connect to our Mac computers. It is a model PV-GS320 Panasonic Digital Video Camcorder. Has anyone experienced difficulty with this camera before? Right now we are using an older camera just for the download process, so we are OK on this point, but I would love to iron out the issue.
Well, back to work…with or without the little “issues” we are still having a great time and the students are learning too!
