I’ve got all modern: I’ve made a Youtube video!

This is my first, and I made the mistake of leaving the mic on the camera on. So sorry about all the wind buffetting. I’ll turn it off next time.

Well, not much for me to say, I’ll let the (lack of) quality of the film speak for itself:

    Hi there,
    The best way to get better audio is to use a Rycote windjammer on the camera. If you Google these items you’ll no doubt find one for your camera. The drastically reduce the wind noise…
    Audio is 50% of your video, so it needs as much or more attention than the images.
    Finally to avoid unwanted parasite noise get a set of ear buds to plug in to the camera to monitor your sound. you wouldn’t shoot without looking at the screen or viewfinder, so it is important to listen as well.
    If you look on TV you’ll always see cameramen and/or soundmen with headphones on.
    Enjoy your shooting,it’s very addictive.

    Cheers for your advice, Gareth.
    You seem to think I am using more advanced equipment than I am – all I’ve got is a regular digital camera that has a ‘movie’ function!
    Which is good enough for my needs.
    I have since been fiddling with Movie Maker and I’ve found the bit where I can mute the sound track on the video!
    Future films won’t suffer from the wind and stuff.
    This first film was just me playing on a whimsy.
    But, once again, your technical advice is much appreciated.
