Hi Caleb. I’m not sure. I’d have to ask my video editing them. They are all royalty free background music used..

Caleb Halkett says:

What’s the song used from about 0:40 to 2:10?

Hello there, do you know “photo SFX art” (just do a Google search for it…)? On their website you will find a smart free video explaining the right way to make impressive photos. It made it easier for Matt to take photographs which leave you with a jaw-dropping-effect while you take a look at them. Hopefully it helps you too…

5minvideomarketing says:

Yes it’s possible to hook in two microphones. You will need a splitter to achieve this and plug two different channels into this one splitter. We have been doing this with two microphones already into the camera.

Thanks

ColinThor says:

As i see your using the T3i. which i really want to get (Love the magiclatern) Is there a way to hook up 2 mics? Lets call it 2 channels. on channel 1 i would like to have the background sounds and on channel 2 i would like to have the person i am interviewing.

Thanks in advance

Isadora Soriana says:

Good morning! Have you ever tried photo sfxart tricks (search for it)? My friend Lianne made some great photos with their video tutorials.

5minvideomarketing says:

I’ve tried this and unfortunately the sound levels will be different. Unless you have an amplified wired mic, it will be more likely that the wireless mic will be recording much louder. The best thing to do is get two wired mics and split them, or vice versa.
Thanks.

VibeTribe11 says:

When using the splitter, can you use one wireless & one wired? thank you!

Hello there, are you familiar with “Photo SFXart Tricks” (just google it)? There you will find a good free video showing the best way to create awesome pictures. It made it easier for Joe to take pictures that leave you with a wow-effect any time you look at them. It may help you as well.

@5minvideomarketing Thanks, I really appreciate it. :)

5minvideomarketing says:

No problems. Simply go to our website by clicking on the link in our description and you will see a button on the right hand side to Video Equipment 101 and all the specific details are there.

Thanks,

DJHey20 says:

@5minvideomarketing Thanks for your comments. Really appreciate you answering me. Can you tell me where I can get more information about these microphones?

5minvideomarketing says:

From what I know, no it does not use or require phantom power. They use dry batteries to power these devices. We use these because it can be taken on the go and does not need an external source to power them, which is why they are great!

5minvideomarketing says:

We currently use the Sennheiser Wireless microphones so that’s what we recommend. It’s amazing equipment and is very lightweight.

DJHey20 says:

Also, do any of those microphones you used use require phantom power? Another thing I am looking for in the external microphone, is one that does not require phantom power. I’m looking for more of one that I can take with me on the go.

DJHey20 says:

Hello there. Thank you for your video. I am looking for a high quality external microphone I can use for my Olympus DM for 20 voice recorder. The two microphones you demonstrated sounded great. Would you recommend the Sennheiser wireless one? I’m looking for a lightweight, yet excellent microphone that doesn’t have any wires that I can just plug directly into the 3.5 mm microphone jack of the recorder.

Feras Awad says:

I have looked for both in Dubai all shops it is not available!!! 🙁

greekflatpicker says:

Thanks VERY much for your reply,sir!
Keep up the good work too.

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks for your question. As long as you have a 3.5mm connector with the Sony, it will work since it’s a battery condensor microphone. Most DSLR cameras, such as the Canon need a condensor microphone to work.

Great question and thanks.

greekflatpicker says:

Hey there and thanks for sharing this video.I have in mind buying the same camera these days and being a musician too,i would like to make good quality videos both on picture but on sound too.
I have one of those Sony ECM-MS907 battery conderser mics.Do you think it’ll work with this camera? Thanks.

5minvideomarketing says:

Yes it will definitely work without Magic Lantern. We installed Magic Latern to get the extra features. Thanks.

Archrew says:

will this work without the magic lantern software? will i just plug it on my 600D? thanks…noob here. . .

5minvideomarketing says:

Great question. We use a splitter, where it goes from 2 females into 1 male connector. You can pick this up from any Tandy or Jay Car electronics store. Thanks

JasonJGallant says:

How would you connect multiple lapel mics, so that two or more people can be wired?

5minvideomarketing says:

Thank you for your support. When you receive it we look forward to seeing your video with the new microphone.

BarExamMind says:

I actually got the wired mic you recommend. I don’t need wireless right now (and it is a bit outside the budget). Also, for what it’s worth, I went through your Amazon link.

5minvideomarketing says:

You are welcome. So which one have you decided on? Let me know if you need any further help. Thanks.

BarExamMind says:

Thanks for this video. I have been looking for a good microphone for my DSLR. I have been reading reviews, but really wanted to hear what they sounded like. Great job.

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks. Yes if you add as a contact, Youtube seems to notify you when new videos come out. So that does help. In addition it makes it easier to communicate with all your contacts when you need to let them know about something.

Also Yaro is cool and I’ve talked a lot about outsourcing and it’s time for video…

beatsaremylife says:

I found your video(s) because you added me as a contact. Do you recommend that as a way to market your videos? I have received a lot of contact notifications since using my channel more often. How did you find me on YouTube, was it random or do you have some sort of process you follow?

As a side note I remember your outsourcing website because of Yaro Starak. Best of luck on your new endeavor.

RichVoyages says:

You picked the best for field work. Some people use the cheaper Sony ECM-AW3 Wireless Microphone to save money. Good Mic. however they have a pop sound to them which can be noticed. I don’t know if that has to do with proximity or what the cause my be.

5minvideomarketing says:

Yes very hilarious! She did not care at all!

5minvideomarketing says:

I was tossing up between the Sony and the Sennheiser for a while and chose the later. Both are good and it then comes down to the price… Also thanks for sharing the tip about HDR’s. That’s a great point and maybe you will see some stills in our videos later on because of your suggestion.

Keller Coleman says:

that was funny the lady walked right past you. Hilarious!

RichVoyages says:

Great video. You can’t go wrong with Sennheiser. I’ve used Sony for a while now in the field in very adverse conditions and they seem put up with more abuse then Canon. You can also use the HDR series which will take stills as you shoot. Which cuts down on coming back and taking stills of your subjects. Great channel. Looking forward to your future videos.

5minvideomarketing says:

It’s around $699 on Amazon. You can pick it up cheaper because the Canon 650D has been released. Shop around…

Thanks

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks. I think we will just need to hold the camera more steady.

ivanzheliazkovVEVO says:

Hi there! How much does the Canon eos 600d cost?

5minvideomarketing says:

Hi Carl, we do have Image Stabilizer already on the lens. We’ve not run with this camera before, so as you can image that’s why the shake…

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks for that and good points you have noted.

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks Kerwin. It gives the video a bit more interest. About the wired microphone, I wouldn’t worry too much about the cover as I lost mine ages ago too. It still works and is actually better without it.

5minvideomarketing says:

Appreciate the compliment and yes I will keep adding links to share the products we use. Thanks

5minvideomarketing says:

Thanks for the suggestion. I used to do this with my Flip Mino as it didn’t have an external microphone jack. I found it took too much extra work in post production to get it right, so that’s why I switched over to the Kodak and eventually the Canon T3i Rebel. Personally I would stick with those as it saves a lot of time over the long run. Thanks for the suggestion though.

lynn warren says:

Great Video! I love the background in both of your videos. It gives me a chance to visit Australia. You are doing a great job on your new venture. Keep up the great work and add links to your displayed products.

cruisinaltitude says:

Hilarious! I love the random people who walk about and the guy trying to get in your video at 2:29 :-). Thanks for the information. I have that first wired microphone you mentioned but not sure where I put it now. Also, I lost that little microphone cover :-(.
