View Full Version : cam and gun shot
so cameras have the movie mode. mine has it and i'd like to take some video clips. i've seen some clips with guns involved but the sound is not quite realistic. i wonder if i should put somekind of soft material near the microphone so it doesn't give the harsh/sharp tone.
i want to hear my 45 goes boom, not crack like the 9 ;f
Heres a vid we did with my Sony DSC-S75. The rifle is a MAK-90 Sporter.
The quality was set at 320x240, medium quality since high quality can only do 15 second clips.
Sounds fairly good to me.

You might be able to get it to sound a little more realistic by using foam, but I dont think that the microphones are capable of capturing it the way it really sounds no matter what you do.
I don't think that foam will help much on the frequency response, but it should cut down on wind noise.
If you want bass response, you should use a prosumer video camera (like a Canon XL1) and a decent microphone. An SM58 may do the trick.
I am not sure that you can get what you want from a teeny tiny mic built into a camera.
