Blue Yeti Microphone ($183.03 CDN) Mount and boom arm are separate purchases
This is the microphone that seems to be most recommended by screencasters. When I had it all set up and created a couple of recordings, I found an odd hum in the results – turned out it was a vibration from my external hard drive sitting on my desk! I decided to take it off its base and purchase a shock mount and boom arm for it – and the sound is great!
It is a very sensitive mic – so keep that in mind if you purchase one of these!
The Blue Yeti fits nicely in the Radius Shockmount mounted on the Rode PSA1 Swivel Mount arm
Blue also has a lower priced microphone called the snowball which gets decent reviews.
I also recently purchased a Boya Lavalier mic ($24.99 CDN)as well for video shots on my IPhone. I record both my iphone audio and Yeti audio and then match the Yeti sound to the iphone video and it seems to work pretty well.
I have also tried this mic out with my Nikon DSLR and the audio is actually pretty decent! Better than the built in mic for sure!
Since I have recently purchased a new Nikon DSLR (D5500) and will probably be taking it out of the office, I will be needing an external microphone. I have done some research and for the money…
I think the RODE VMGO is the unit I will be purchasing ($119.00 CDN) – Just went up $20!
