  1. Hello Phillip,

    Quick question. Tascam is your first choice? What happened to the zoom H4n? You have a page where you talk about the difference?
    Thanks

    I get real success without the external sound recorder, as I find even the best of them slightly “tinny” and thin in sound, using Rode Video Mic Pro. They are an Australian made microphone that I find execeptionally clear. The pad swith means I get no clipping in any circumstance.
    Have you every worked with these before what are your thoughts?
    Does sound get recorded better using a better dslr once you have an external mic attached or are they much of a muchness?
