I have refined this project and added audio, using the Sound Shark Parabolic Microphone.
A week ago I set out to look at “my pad” on a video rig. I see promise.
I went to validate my configuration from earlier today where I want to use my iPad Pro 10.5 as a 4K video camera for the 2017 International Folks Festival Parade of Nations in Fayetteville, North Carolina late September.

Moved a few things around and better prepared the truck for transport

While on a publishing pause, I did several things. Today’s focus, the Sound Shark Parabolic Microphone
Purchased from Sound Shark Audio.
Initial Impressions: I am ecstatic! The sound is crisp and clear. This parabolic microphone performs as described in the videos @ https://soundsharkaudio.com/. Of course, I will record sound 5 to 30 feet or so away. I expect to use it to capture audio for athletic events. The sound truck is nearly complete. To add: a robotic camera to follow the tag(s) with this microphone atop. It will be late summer or early fall before that happens. In the meantime, I’ll work with the truck as is…
Reasons I have honed in on the Sound Shark.
My plan is that the Sound Shark will sit atop a 2nd SOLOSHOT on the Sound Truck
that also tracks the tag and captures sound. I’ll feed that sound wirelessly [mixed with other audio] to the SS3 recording the video. It will sit on top of the orange shrouded tripod you see in these pictures
I’ve done all I can for now–documented with my DSLR.
Slipped the voice over mic to the right so it does not block the laptop screen, added a shelf to the top rack, and added a red LED flashlight. Next, [maybe June] will be a parabolic microphone.
Nice clean sound for adding narration to videos
Since my last update, I have placed a tripod column [outside wrapped in yellow], swapped USB cables [black for clear]. added a boom for the VO Mic, and added the voice over microphone [an AKG P220]. We are on track to have sound by mid-June. Oh! I am using a Rycote Pop Filter. It’s in front of the microphone.
I plan to add a parabolic microphone versus a shotgun microphone. I hope to use a second SS3 to move the parabolic mic in sync with the camera. Then, there will be the matter of getting sound from the truck to the 3.5mm stereo input jack on the SOLOSHOT Cameras.–wirelessly of course.
Now centered over the mixer and the green is mostly hidden
I’ll replace the white cable USB Extension Cable with a black one. [Before]
