I have been researchig this everywhere and I can't seem to find the answer. I would like to record song covers outside but I do not want any ambiant or car noise. I would like the audio to be focused on the music only without having to pre-record anything. I have a Sony camcorder and was wondering if an external microphone would be the best choice. However after researching shotgun mics, I read that it is purposly used to capture ambiance noise. Any tips to outdoor recording??
