I also looked at field recorders such as the ever so popular Samson H4. That seem very low, if any hissing. However I need to sync in post.
I saw using a high pass filter to get rid of the hissing, however some people say it doesn't work too well.
So now I'm completely lost. What can you guys/girls help me out with... All I want is a microphone for my camera to record sound. Mainly voice sound effects and sometimes ambient. I am a student with a budget, granted I have an expensive camera, I don't have a bunch of money to spend on sound (yet)."
