Audio Products – Entry level

Gear Guide - Entry level audio products

Recording video is only half of the equation. Audio is just as important, and that’s why we’re diving into essential audio gear with this list. You’ll find both budget audio equipment and neat solutions that won’t break the budget, but will enhance the in-camera audio.

This list is mostly about improving your camera’s built-in audio capabilities, but also essential yet affordable external equipment for capturing good sound on set. Shotgun mics, lavalier mics, on-camera mic preamps, you name it.

Everything in here should really be the bare minimum of audio gear you have for your kit. Decent audio is so important that it just doesn’t make sense to rely only on built-in solutions.
