Surat: The quality of gadgets such as microphone, camera, room acoustics, lights and the ambience are vital for producing a video for high standard.

Broadcasting opinions using social media on politicians, actors, sportspeople, celebrities, appliances, gadgets, real estate, stocks, money markets and even cats and dogs is fashionable these days.

People who broadcast their content on YouTube, whether good, bad or offensive, often fail to use good quality gadgets.  This severely undermines their video quality. Small wonder, viewers exit the channel within the first ten seconds!

The quality of mic often decides whether viewers would continue to stay on the YouTube channel. People like to listen what the presenter is saying. If the audio is bad, then who would waste time?

The quality of microphone, camera, tripod stand lights and room acoustics thus make a big difference in the video production quality, experts say unanimously.

From the above mentioned gadgets The National Dawn lists a few microphone brands that are ideal to deliver good audio quality

Deciding which microphone is the best for YouTube depends on the type or style of your videos. Mostly, you will prefer more than one microphone so that you can use the one that fits your situation best.

If you are doing screen recordings or voice-overs after you record, a USB or XLR studio mic would work best.

Shotgun mics are excellent for run-and-gun style videos, vlogging, and sit-down interview-style shots.

The National Dawn now review Lavalier Microphones for social media content generators unfamiliar with it.

Lavalier Microphones (with cable or without) for recording

Lavalier microphones are also called lapel mics. They are small and the user can clip to his/her shirt, collar or tie. The great thing about lavalier mics is that they allow you to record hands-free.

Once you have it positioned correctly, you won’t even have to think about the microphone. You can just focus on the content you are producing.

They are small and unobtrusive, therefore, they are great for recording video as well and are commonly used with DSLR cameras and iPhones.

Sports anchors, news reporters, conference presenters, clergymen, priests, swamis, schools and colleges use Lavalier mics. They make a great option for podcasting on the go or creating YouTube videos as well.

Mics come in both wired and wireless options, both having their pros and cons. We’ll start by highlighting the best lavalier microphones in 2020 for a variety of budgets in the wired configuration.

  1. Fifine Wireless Lavalier Mic

The Fifine Wireless Lavalier Microphone won’t win any prizes for sound quality. That said, Amazon reviewers note that the quality is good enough for the cost. As a result, it’s a great budget option for filmmakers who are looking for an equipment upgrade that won’t break the bank.

  1. ViewFlex Comica CVM-WM100

The ViewFlex Comica CVM-WM100 is a wireless lavalier system that includes a transmitter, receiver, lapel microphone, wind cover, and the cables you need to set it up. The system has a rated range of 328ft; though you can reduce the signal strength to save power if you don’t need that range.

  1. Pixel WM10 Wireless Lav Mic

The Pixel WM10 Wireless Lav Mic is a sizeable step up in both cost and features. Of note is the inclusion of two transmitters with two lavalier microphones, that can be used simultaneously with the receiver. That means you can have two subjects equipped with microphones, with 50 frequencies to choose from.

  1. Shure BLX14/CVL

Shure is one of the leading global microphones manufacturers, with a brand name that commands respect and requires deep pockets. That’s certainly the case with the Shure BLX14/CVL.

  1. Sony UWP-D11

The Sony UWP-D11 is a solid choice for professionals looking for high-end audio capture. The system consists of a transmitter, a receiver, an omnidirectional lapel microphone, windscreens, and various clips. The omnidirectional microphone will capture audio in a spherical pattern. This is in contrast to the narrower pattern provided by alternatives like cardiod microphones.
