Hello everyone,

I have a new project starting up soon and it's going to involve filming interviews of people in center city Philadelphia. As you could imagine, it's loud in the city due to cars and crowds of people. I would really like for the noise to be dialed down as much as possible and obviously decent video quality.

I was wondering what the best camera and microphone is to use for these interviews? I'd prefer not to spend a fortune, but I will spend whatever I need to to get it done.

Thanks,
Shaunbhai

If you're going to be doing interviews I would focus on an external recorder ( IT will record quality audio than your on camera usally can)

I'd recommend a Rode Reporter $129.99 Link: http://www.rode.com/microphones/reporter

That's what we use for the TubeBuddy interviews!

For external recorder, I would probably recommend anything from Tascam or Zoom :)

Knowing your specific budget can help a good amount!

Rode mics are always good. If you have an iPhone, I'd recommend getting the Shure MV88.
