Posted in Features on Monday, April 01 Any dedicated vlogger will tell you that quality video is only half the equation to making a popular vlog. Audio is at least half the battle. Good sound is arguably even more important than good visuals.
Best YouTube microphones
No longer constrained by the static images and text of the humble blog, vloggers of all kinds are changing the face of internet marketing. YouTube, where most vloggers host their content, is the second largest social network and the second most visited website on the internet after Google. Most importantly, YouTube is where your audience spends a huge amount of time online. Recent reports show that viewers spend one billion hours on YouTube daily — more than Netflix and Facebook Video combined. And, yes, you should have both. While many popular vlogging cameras come with built-in microphones, all cameras are built to prioritize picture quality, so the audio is generally an afterthought. You can end up with a lot of ambient noise, and nobody wants to hear your mom yelling in the background or trash cans being emptied outside. As demand in the vlogosphere grows, home studio tech like cameras and microphones have become increasingly affordable over the last year. As we mentioned above, some microphones are designed to record everything around them — these are called omnidirectional mics. Others are built to record only in one direction unidirectional.

If you see a price that looks too good to be true, it probably is! Beware of counterfeit goods. You can view a current list of unauthorized US dealers here. It has never been easier or more affordable for anyone to create high-quality video content. We are living in the golden era of vlogging, with more content being created about more topics by more people every day, and in the way that blogging democratised the written word some odd years ago, vlogging is blasting the video format wide open. When it comes to vlogging, audio is just as important as the video itself.
If not watch it. What a bozza topic. Do not make anything risque public.
