Windscreen

Post by JackBauerII » Thu Jun 22, 2006 3:38 pm

My Sony DCRTRV250's microphone, which is located about half an inch under the lens, picks up an unusual amount of wind. I was thinking of attaching a foam vocal mic screen to it. Would this work? Any other ideas? Also, I was looking for a mic out port on the camera but couldn't find one. The camera's specs didn't mention one, so an external mic is not a realistic option for me. Thanks!

The mic is covered by a little plastic piece. I'm going to pull that off and see if I can find anything. Or maybe I should read the manual first.

Often for heavy wind a piece of cloth tape over the mic will do the trick. Hockey tape works well (and also serves a million and one other uses on set).
