Topic: If you've got a Canon GL1 ...

Shut off the 'windscreen' and 'mic att' options. This is what makes the on-board camera sound like shit. You get a sooo much more full sound out of it - perfect for recording shows and whatnot.

Hot hot tip.

Re: If you've got a Canon GL1 ...

Is that why the audio in a majority of your videos (well atleast a while ago) sounded like there was a sock over the mic?

Hmm, i'll have to remember that when I use the GL1's at school and stuff..

Re: If you've got a Canon GL1 ...

Yeah, everyone bitches about the GL-1 onboard mic, and it's pretty shitty, I agree, but changing those options made the sound actually sound DECENT. So, I am not so afraid of it anymore. I should really just use my shotgun mic all the time, but then I need someone to operate a boom, and there's never a lot of people to help out.

Re: If you've got a Canon GL1 ...

Put it on your camera via the accessory shoe, plug it in. Thats not as good as booming it, but for documentary/everyday shit type stuff, it will sound better.
