  1. Can you tell me what settings you have your camera set on 4 audio. I bought the exact same set up last week and today is actually the last day I can return it and I get an awful hiss in the background of my videos. I can hear the hiss in your video is when you stop speaking but it seems a lot more subdued than in mine

  2. That was so helpful!! Thank you! I was wondering which lens you were using on this video, it looks great. Keep doing videos buddy, you're awesome!

  3. They both sound the same to me, I’m getting this camera soon and don’t know if I really need a mic
