For professionally produced films, the sound is usually recorded separate from the camera by a dedicated audio recorder. Why? Usually, this allows the crew to record higher quality sound. Recording sound this way is called Dual System or Sync Sound. In this episode, we show you how to record dual system sound so that you can increase the overall production value of your video and film projects.
