I recently switched from the Zoom H1 and Rode VideoMic Pro to the Sony ICD-UX560 Recorder and budget Rode VideoMicro, plus the Aputure A.Lav EZ Lapel Mic.
In this video I review these affordable and portable microphones, explain why I’m switching my travel vlog setup and give a full comparison of the recorders – including clean audio samples.
If you want to hear what the Rode VideoMicro sounds like my recent vlog from Budapest was filmed entirely using it:
Zoom H1n (new updated version of mine):
Sony ICD-UX560 Digital Stereo Recorder:
Rode SC3 Adaptor:
Aputure A.Lav EZ Lapel Mic:
(Unfortunately since making this video these seem to be hard to get, so see similar alternative below)
Aputure A.Lav Lapel Mic:
(this version works directly with cameras and audio recorders, so doesn’t require the Rode SC3 adaptor, however it won’t work with phones)
