  • How do i increase the range of a wireless camera ..note ..its wireless not wi-fi ..it runs on 2.4GHz..can i get a more powerful receiver ..?

    Best answer: If the system came with an receiving antenna you need to experiment with moving it around. I had to fiddle with my wireless 2.4Ghz security cameras and the antenna a bit to get them to work consistently. You also probably can buy an extension cable to allow the antenna to be closer to the cameras. It all comes... show more

I had to fiddle with my wireless 2.4Ghz security cameras and the antenna a bit to get them to work consistently. You also probably can buy an extension cable to allow the antenna to be closer to the cameras. It all comes down to doing all you can to get the receiving antenna as close to "line of sight" to all your cameras. If there is metal between the two it will not work well.

  • Does anyone have a link to an external microphone for a camera that doesn't need to be plugged into the camera's audio jack to work?

    Best answer: You are describing a wireless lavaliere mic (sometimes called a "lapel" mic because they come with a clip for a lapel or collar rather than taped to skin. The lavaliere is connected using a thin wire to a battery powered transmitter. The transmitter sends the audio signal, wirelessly, to a base station.... show more
    Best answer: You are describing a wireless lavaliere mic (sometimes called a "lapel" mic because they come with a clip for a lapel or collar rather than taped to skin.

    The lavaliere is connected using a thin wire to a battery powered transmitter. The transmitter sends the audio signal, wirelessly, to a base station. There are two types of base stations - portable (battery powered) and not...

    I use Sennheiser portable wireless lavalieres like
    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1...

    There is no camera with a built-in wireless receiver. Sennheiser, Sony (professional), Audio Technica, Lectrovoice, Shure, RODE and a few others make good wireless gear. None are inexpensive and are good, solid, reputable, manufacturers.

    Azden, Polson, Saramonic, Samson and many others make wireless gear, too... and I cannot recommend any of them.

    If your camera has no audio input, the easiest way would be to capture the audio externally, then merge the audio with the video when editing. I use a Zoom H5... and yes, you would connect the base station to the field audio recorder.

    If taping to skin, DO NOT use any sort of "regular adhesive tape" (like scotch tape or duct tape). It can pull skin off and that hurts a LOT. Use "moleskin"...

    Best answer: Define "best".

    Assuming your definition includes, "that which will be around to use/view when my grandchildren are ready to see the home video", then think about what's happened in the past, first. In the mid-20th century (1960s through 1970s) 8mm film was popular even with no audio. In the later part of the 20th century, analog video (Beta, VHS, 8mm, Hi8) was popular. Processes to convert film to analog video happened. In the last decade of the 20th century, digital tape (miniDV) became popular as did CDs, DVDs an personal computers.

    Since the early 21st century, electro-mechanical hard drives have come down in price and increased storage, flash memory is a popular video capture storage media and there are lots of different ways to convert various analog images (moving and still) to digital format.

    Why the history lesson? Because that which is "good" today" will not be useful in 10, 40 or 50 years from now.

    50 years ago, film and still images printed on paper (or carefully stored negatives) were "best". 30 years ago, a 3.5 inch disk was the "best". Remember Iomega ZIP drives?

    We cannot see into the future. The "best" you can do today is to store what you have, uncompressed, on electro-mechanical hard drives (yes, plural). Two or three hard drives with identical content should be stored in different cool, dry, ideally environmentally controlled, places. This will eliminate a single point of failure and losing the data.

    When the next long-term storage method becomes reality, be prepared to convert from that "archive" to the new storage method.

    Why not cloud? A couple of reasons: (1), video uses LOTS of space. Archiving that much will be expensive and consume lots of hard drive space in a cloud data center somewhere. (2) We don't know which companies will be in business in 5 years - not to mention who will be in business in 50 years. (3) Cloud data centers can be hacked. We've all seen the news from Google, AWS, MSN and others, so if you are surprised, then you aren't paying attention. If it is *that* important, you cannot depend on others you don't know to take care of it so you have to do it yourself.

    This is my opinion of what is "best". It is not inexpensive. It can be very labor intensive. Is there a balance between the above, being cost effective and not so labor intensive? Sure... but we don't know your specific requirements, budget and expertise. Only you can decide that "threshold of pain" to determine whet is best for you...
