My current digital video camera is quite old and crappy quality, especially the sound. I have been doing primate research in madagascar last year where I also did lots of filming. I have produced a short lemur film but the sound is really bad.
I am thinking of buying either a sound recorder or a external microphone for my video camera. If I am, for example in a rainforest, will it be possible to record good quality sound of animals that are quite some distance away with a sound recorder.
What should be the best option to record nature sounds over long distance in the field? audio recorder or video camera with external microphone?
Thanks for your help
