Field Production Equipment
A handheld microphone is best used for conducting interviews quickly without having to attach a lavalier microphone to your subject.
A lavalier microphone is best used for conducting interviews with subjects during a sit down formal interview.
A wireless microphone kit includes a receiver, which attaches to the camcorder, a lav, and a handheld transmitter. A wireless mic kit is best for when you cannot have cables attached to your camcorder.
A top light is attached to the top of a camcorder to light a small area directly in front of the camcorder. The downside to a top light is that it only reaches about 6 feet in front of the camcorder, so it should only be used if the talent or object is within 6 feet of the camcorder.
