Do you make videos for your library? If so, you might try the camera I use in this video. It’s a Canon Powershot G7 Mark II. I’ve had it for about 9 months, and I have to say – I love it! It’s really easy to use, just like you’d expect from a point-and-shoot style camera.
Best of all – the microphone on this camera does a great job. Listen to the video – while the audio is certainly not studio quality, it does a fine job of picking up my voice. I didn’t have to boost the audio when I was editing the video, or play around with it in any way.
That said, I was about 18 inches away from the camera, too. If I was 6 feet away or more, it’d be pretty quiet. But still – it’s nice to not have to mess with audio if you don’t have to!
So – enjoy the video … give it a “listen” (weird to say for a video), and see for yourself.
