Because the original one was way too dark, I’ve gone ahead and reuploaded my previous video with comparisons between the Rode VideoMic Pro and the built-in microphone of the Lumix G85, along with some tap to focus tests and more rambling on about exposing to the right.

Kelvin temperature was set manually in camera and Panasonic’s Image App was used to focus and start recording. The video was uploaded straight to YouTube from the memory card. My studio… Read More
