I bought a cheap handycam some time back, one from Sony, for about $410 to record videos to put on YouTube. The recording picks up a lot of audio static even if I have the fan switched off.
I want to do videos without any static. Like this one, for example:
I understand I'll require a mic that connects directly to the video camera to eliminate static. I know nothing. Do I need a lapel mic? Do I need a different camera? What sort of camera? What sort of an investment am I looking at?
Is there a cheaper option to do videos without any static? Can you remove noise (audio) from a video? Is it a painful & lengthy process, like a linear thing where you have to watch and listen to the entire tape and keep chopping?
