The reason for this is that there are a lot of factors that affect the quality of audio recordings. You can read about this here. Even in professional settings where top of the line cameras are used, special arrangements are still made to record the audio with appropriate audio recording equipment.
For mobile devices, there are not many options for external audio recording solutions. This state of affairs has however changed with the introduction of Saramonic Microphones. With these mics, some of the factors necessary to achieve a higher quality of audio recording are met.
In this article, we shall be taking a look at some of the products from Saramonic and how they can help the mobile device owner improve the quality of their recordings.
Saramonic is a brand committed to the improvement of spur-of-the-moment and amateur creativity. The brand believes that you do not have to splurge on very expensive equipment to be able to achieve good quality audio/visual productions.
With an array of products which cover audio adaptors and microphones, practically any mobile device can be upgraded to capture high resolution audio. With the products from this brand, practically everyone can explore their creativity, achieving a quality that would hitherto have been impossible without very expensive equipment and a whole lot of professionals working on the project.
What we are looking at here are Saramonic microphones that are not just affordable but also very easy to use, making it ideal for everyone, old or young.
This brand just started operations in 2014 and within this time, it has done a lot to promote creativity in the amateur audio/visual industry.
To give you an idea of what you can get from Saramonic to improve your audio captures, we will look at a few of the product options for various mobile scenarios.
Wireless microphones come in very handy when having a stretch of wire connecting to the recording device can be cumbersome. You have various wireless options you can choose from. These include Lavalier (lapel) and handheld variations. Any of these will work perfectly with your smartphone or DSLR camera because they each offer both XLR and 3.5mm connection options.
You also have wired options that can serve for your podcasts and any other situation where wires will not be messy. You can get a wide range of microphones under this category. Examples include shotgun (more on this later), regular handheld and even Lavaliers.
There are situations where you want to mount a microphone on your camera. This has been possible for a while on professional cameras and DSLRs. However, smartphones and other devices that have 3.5mm inputs and low ohms requirement were not catered for. This has now changed as Saramonic offers various microphone types that can be mounted directly on your DSLR and smartphone.
We mentioned Lavalier or Lapel microphones above. These are designed to be inconspicuous, nesting on the speaker’s cloth lapel or any other location around the speaking area and nicely capturing the sound from the speaker. This is great for interviews, acting and other shots in which the speaker(s) will be at some distance away from the camera.
Another specialized option is the shotgun microphone. This is a microphone that theater and movie producers love a lot. You can read all about this type of microphone here: http://www.learningaboutelectronics.com/Articles/What-is-a-shotgun-microphone. With this option for smart phones and other mobile devices, you can achieve professional level recordings.
We live in interesting times and this has been confirmed in more ways than one. The ability to create professional, high-resolution audio-visual projects with budget equipment means that no one has any excuse for not exploring their creativity.
Get your smartphone and begin to explore the world around you, pushing your creativity to the very limits. You can be sure that Saramonic will be with you all the way.
