Omnidirectional or Unidirectional mic?

by Vivian
(Temecula, CA)

I would like to produce videos for two businesses, my daughter's makeup artist business and my husband's plumbing business.

My daughter's videos: makeup application. Husband's videos: do it yourself plumbing procedures such as unclogging a sink.

I believe the best choice for an external mic for the Kodak Zi8 for my use would be wireless. Do you think omnidirectional or an unidirectional would be the better choice?

Thank you. Getting so much great info from your website.

Hi Vivian, and I glad to hear you are enjoying the site ;-)

I personally think the best microphone set up for the Kodak Zi8 is to connect the Zi8 onto a Hama Folding Bracket (With shoe attachment) and a Rode 'Shotgun' mic (unidirectional).

I have found that set up to give the best results with the Kodak Zi8 and sounds perfect for the type of videos you want to shoot.

Hope that helps?
