Nikon Z6 for Short Films

Recommended Posts

I've been shooting real estate vids on the z6. 

I want to start shooting small docos on it. Just for youtube and myself.  The preamps are rubbish.  
Can anyone recommend a teeny sound recorder? I've just ordered the rode wireless go, that I can mate it with. (I've got this we thingy:https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/673340-REG/Tascam_DR_08_DR_08_Portable_Digital_Audio.html but it is really beat up, and i dont trust the 3.5mm inputs 100% - totally not ideal for doco reording. Need it to be bulletproof). 

Also the inbuilt h.264 is probably OK, I'm shooting flat. Anyone using Andrew's flat profile? Pros/cons?

Any other little bits of kit that would improve the experience?  I dont know about and external recorder - relatively big expense for how much benefit? I've not seen any news about z6 raw either - is it out yet?

Yeah the Flat profile is quite good. As long as you expose decently and get decent white balance you'll have no issues. 

Honestly I'd just stick to the recorder you have. Looks similar to the Zoom H1 which is a great little recorder. Nothing really wrong with 3.5mm jacks.

You could get a preamp if you want to record sound right to your camera.
