Hi ..... looking for some easy to digest advice here. I'm working with a bunch of fellow sports fans to produce a monthly DVD of game highlights mixed with interviews, fun features, etc. We have plenty of consumer level digital cameras, all of which do a perfectly decent job for us but we are struggling on sound ..... in particular when recording on the spot interviews with fans. We have been using the on-board camera mics but they simply don't shield out enough of the background noise to make the interviews audible ..... and they have no external mic sockets. I'd like us to use hand-held mics and some form of portable digital recording equipment but none of us have any experience in this field and we haven't a clue what to look for. We are running all this as a fund-raiser so we have no budget to speak of but we can find funds for something if it is of good value ....... ie: cheap but providing good quality sound !!! Can anybody offer some advice and/or recommendations ?
