Question about Televison & Video
just wondering is there anyway of reducing wind noise on a video i use in a sercurity camera.... i have troublesome neighbours and i have finally caught them saying what nobody else hears but me!!!! unfortunatley unless u glue ur ear to the speaker on the tele u you can't hear it and alot more was said that i can't hear because of the wind blowing at the mic on the camera......
i know its a long shot but i would really appreciate it
Wind noise is very common when recording outside.
Firstly, make sure the microphone you use is uni-directional. This means it will work in the same way that a television antenna does, in that it will pick up sound from the direction it points in, but sounds from other directions will be attenuated. These mics are often used by broadcasters and those in noisy situations, football matches etc.
Secondly, make sure your microphone is fitted with a good foam wind cover. If it already has one, fit a thicker one. This is the single most important thing you can do to cut down on wind noise. You can always get yourself some foam and wrap it around the microphone, right over the top, and tie it with a piece of string.
It sounds a bit wacky, but even pro broadcasters do this from time to time.
Finally, consider using an extension mic cable and positioning it closer to the signal source. Be careful though. If the neighbours are that bad, make sure you are not on your own.
Good luck and best wishes
