    Hi All,

    I've got a Sony SCR-130e that is a miniDV cam.

    It records audio in stereo by way of a dual microphone on the front of the unit.

    Unsurprisingly, in large open rooms (like in a church), or outside the voices of the subjects - because they're at a distance - is quiet and echoey, and it is easily overpowered by noise nearer the cam.

    What can I do to sort this? I was thinking of some kind of boom mic (or small equivalent on a stand). Can I plug it straight in to the camera (I believe there's an audio in port)? Is it that simple?

    For the clever ones who are tempted to say "get closer", I'm asking about situations where this isn't possible (like a wedding etc.).

    Cheers.

    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room.

    @ stiltman
    Cheers for the info - I hadn't thought of those. Anybody know where I can get hold of them in the UK?

    @ troyvcd1
    Thanks for the info. I've had a look at a picture of mic / cam assembly - does it really pick up the sound that well? I was thinking that the mic(s) would have to be nearer...?
