I'm trying a bunch of different types of microphones to go with my HV40. I haven't used it much but a new job has prompted me to start using it. I'm shooting "talking head" styled interviews and while the image quality is sweet, I need a mic thats going to record perfect sound, will be unobtrusive to the interviewee and work with my HV40. I have one off those old Sony HD cameras that have a "shoe" port that enables the use of a blue tooth mic but when you clip that of to someone who moves around a fair bit it will pick up all the scratches from it rubbing up against their shirt or what ever. And the mic is not very discrete. So I'm keen to set up a Boom mic and possible a more discrete wireless mic to use with my HV40.
So, do external mics get on all that well with the HV40? Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as boom or wireless lapel mics that are compatible with the HV40? I have a Sony ECM672 electric condensing mic that works well but it has one of those large 3 pin connections - are there any adaptors or anything that will allow me to connect it to the HV40? or is a better option to purchase a new one and go with that?
Any, advice or help would be really appreciated!
