No. Even with assistance with a parabolic mic you can hear the degradation. Such is fine for surveillance work but content for others to watch? You would not consider that.
The old system of a wireless lapel mic is best with some audio recorder at the receiver. Only the very new would attempt dueling microphones are over 20 feet.
Hello! I am looking to do some candid camera comedy with a few of my friends on the streets. We are trying to find the best way to record audio externally. A bunch of the jokes require the camera to be a great distances making them inable to pick up audio.We were thinking about syncing up the audio using one of these external audio recorder. Just wondering if anybody had knowledge or experiance in the matter and help with this purchase me and my friends are about to make! I also was wondering if there was a way to record audio at great distances and have it sync up with the camera automatically (sounds more expensive we only have 3-400 dollars to spend) Thanks so much!
These were the audio recorders we were looking at... http://www.sony.com.au/productcategory/pa-voice-recorder
