Wondering if there is a smaller stereo mic solution for travel than the rode stereo pro that I'm currently using.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

on board stereo is fine for my needs. I prefer stereo sound and for travel I want it to simply record in camera. Otherwise I would use my Tascam DR60D. This is for a trip we are doing and would prefer smaller option "if" possible.

I dont want to deviate too far, but the next time you get your hands on a sony body, you'll find out that the video created doesnt pick up noise like canon, even with the same lenses.

With that in mind, sony bodies dont pick up IS noise, and dont pick up AF noise, even canon USM lenses. Try an A7rii for video, it's pretty darn amazing for that task. Downside is that it's a stereo mic, and I really dont care for stereo mics, I would rather have directional.

Rode is small as is, you can try phone mics to see if you can adapt

something like this should work and probably wont pick up the noise: https://www.amazon.com …3&keywords=smar​tphone+mic (external link)

Which is why I want the A9. Aside from ergonomics it's the perfect camera. They fixed alot of my issues. We'll see.... They have the native 85 that is a good performer or I can just us an adapter. I don't need speed shooting the 85.
