Want to know about microphones? Sit right where you are and we’ll bring the experts to you. recently attended the Digital Video Expo East in New York City, where we got the 411 on mics from Wayne Alonso, vice president of sales for Azden Corporation. If you’re in the market for a mic, Azden is a name you should know.

We started off by asking Alonso about the basic types of mics for video camera use. Ever heard of a carotid mic? Watch the video below and you will.
