Chapter 5. Capturing Audio > Your Camcorder's Microphone

Your Camcorder's Microphone

I don't want to give the impression that a camcorder's built-in microphone is a flimsy afterthought. On the contrary, it's a sophisticated device that does the best it can given the circumstances. Where it falls flat at times is with its placement: Because camcorders are so small, there isn't much room for a microphone (Figure 5.2), so you're bound to pick up sounds that the camera is making (such as the motor advancing the tape, or the zoom control adjusting the lens).
