When shooting with our camcorder we must not forget the importance of sound. In general, the microphones integrated in our camera do not usually have a capture of sufficient quality and clarity, that is why we need special microphones for video.

DSLR lenses are very good for making videos, but in sound they are often insufficient. To improve this, there are external microphones and wireless microphones with higher sensitivities and lower noise.

An external microphone captures a crisp, clean and professional sound. In the Duke Photography catalogue you have options such as the SARAMONIC MIXMIC KIT FOR CANON or the BOYA MICROPHONE BY-PVM50, which far surpass the quality of your SLR's built-in microphone. And if you also want to complete your equipment with a great lighting, you can consult our lighting offer and form a perfect team for your recordings.
