Sony A6300

This video is to help a friend who wants to know the best Sony A6300 mic for interviews and the best audio settings on the camera. The in camera mic on the sony A6300 & A6500 won’t cut it when it comes to professional sounding interviews. Here are two
lav mic options at two different price points that I use. Keep in mind the these Sony cameras don’t have headphone jacks to monitor the audio so keep that in mind when filming your interview.

There are other methods and gear to monitor the audio on the A6300 but these are the methods I use when keeping it convenient and quick to setup.

Hope this was easy to follow and helpful, let me know if there’s anything you would like to learn, stay awesome!
