I can't overemphasize this:…sound or audio is critically important to shooting video.…Without good audio in the finished and edited video, your video simply will not…be perceived well by your audience.…In fact, it won't even look as good, because what we see is influenced by what we hear.…Working with audio starts by just being aware of the sound around you.…Just hearing problems in the sound environment as you prepare to shoot can help…you make adjustments to how you shoot, so that you get better sound.…
It would be really nice to be able to listen in to what your camera is hearing,…look for its audio by plugging in some earphones.…That's something that is common with a true camcorder, but at this point, very…uncommon with DSLRs.…There are some accessories available that will allow you to listen into your…audio, but these accessories can be expensive.…So to start, you are going to have to pay attention to the sounds that are…going on around you.…It also helps to play back your sound on your camera.…
