I am in a bind. I need to order a camera today, and I have come to the two choices above. For now they would be mostly for shooting indoor interviews. I'm not certain of how controller the environments will be. They will be shot by someone who has little experience with cameras. Decent audio is important.
Panasonic G6 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CFCTDD6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER)
I've been told the kit lens will not be good enough for indoor.
We are in NYC, so I don't think I should consider wireless mics.
I feel lavalier mics are the way to go for now. I need help choosing a lav mic that will work with the G6, and be well suiting for interviews. So far I have the Sony ECM-44B and Audio-Technica AT899 in mind.
Can I just use a XLR to 3.5mm adapter (this one in particular: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000068NZF/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A30BLJGJO43UD4)?
Is the autofocus good enough so that if the interviewee moves, it would focus on him?
Sony A6000 (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Alpha-Interchangeable-Camera-16-50mm/dp/B00I8BICB2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398280001&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+a6000)
The main concern I have here is audio recording with the hot shoe. What is there is too much interference for the bluetooth mic option? Any recommendations?
Also, if you could recommend a tripod, I'd be grateful. :-)
