Audio Preamp for Nikon z7
« on: December 03, 2018, 08:39:30 AM »

I am preparing audio/video setup for video interviews of 3-4 people and planing on recording backup audio in camera.

I am planing on running multiple lav mics into H4n and recording shotgun from a boom into the camera.
Preamp on Nikon z7 is quite noisy, it is significantly more noisy than H4n. I looked into reviews on numerous preamps, yet still cannot decide which route to go best.

I could get a small and light preamp to mount on camera that can remain on camera during use on gimbal for other occasions.
Alternatively, I could mount a second recorder over or under the camera with output into camera.
 - Zoom Digital Multitrack Recorder (F1-LP) (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0797DCMGM)
 - Tascam DR-60DMKII 4-Channel Portable Audio Recorder for DSLR (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MIXFBL0)

If you have any experience to share, I would greatly appreciate it.

I am going to give this a try - V-Mic D3 Pro.
Broadcast quality mic with continuously variable 20bd gain, may be with it an additional preamp with the z7 won't be necessary.

I was going to chime in with the Tascam DR-70d as an option as you'll want to be able to mix your subjects & monitor, plus it has those backup mic's on the front of it.  That way you can boom the H4n out and call it done?  Relatively cheap and rentable.
