With the advent of the increased capabilities of the Nikon bodies to create high quality video images, the question comes up as to how to grab a sound track with equal quality. This is the place for folks who are willing, to share their experiences, good and not so good, recommendations, and then post on the Video thread the results. I think more and more the desire to acquire nearly professional quality videos will become met by the Nikon equipment. And the sound is a big part of the end product.
It is generally accepted one cannot have good quality sound coming through the in camera microphone. Simple physics tells us that the closer to the source, the better the sound. Think...ever tried to shoot a macro shot from across the room?
OK, folks, jump in....
