DIY [# 19] ~ Videography–Sound Truck [back from my 04/13 pause] ~ Sound Shark added, 05/04

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…

 

Technology ~ Audio/Sound–The Sound Shark, 04/15

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.

DIY [# 19] ~ Videography–Sound Truck [on pause for several weeks], 04/13

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.
