Hi Everyone.
Please can anybody advise.I have been asked to video a friends wedding a small affair at a hotel approx 45 guests.
I will be using my Canon MVX460 mini DV tape my worry is the sound.I have connected a Yoga condenser microphone EM-258,but on experimenting I get better results from the internal mic on the camcorder.
Without breaking the bank is there a better ext mico available.
As you can see I am not a professional but would like to hand over a good finished product.
Thank you for your time.
Kind regards.


A lot depends on how much you are willing to spend - but the Rode VideoMic at around £80 is hard to beat for the price.
