    Note, my previous post is for using my phone to record videos on the trail.

    If I use my FauxPro, I go two-system sound and replace the audio in post. My phone's native audio recording app and the same mic previously mentioned are how I record sound.

    Also, putting a lav mic under your shirt (and using your shirt as a sort of wind screen) can be helpful in a pinch.

    (Can you tell that I have a low-budget YouTube channel?)

    Just a quick side trail from the OP... Can you point me to a good tutorial for shooting and editing video from my phone? And I mean a tutorial for a complete tech idiot?

    KDEnlive is available for Windows now. I've used it for years and it's pretty good, plenty of tutorials on their website and a bunch of videos on Youtube.

    Or are you wanting to edit ON your phone? If so, good luck! Editing can really tax a good desktop and I don't think a phone would have the horsepower to do it.


    As a side note, to use a bluetooth mic for audio on a phone, there is another program called BTMono that is required. I can't edit that into my previous post, so here it is.

    If using an IPhone, then IMovie is the easiest editing software. You Tube is your friend from a fellow tech idiot. Also look into the Lavalier Microphone and while you are at it... The Pedco Ultralight Camera Pod that will work with a phone mount clip. Finally, the Stic Pic for your Trekking Pole.

    These items have been used and recommended by last year AT Vloggers that went with an IPhone approach.

    I am hoping that practice makes perfect but I am almost ready to bipass vlogging. The bar is to high with Early Riser this year! Lol

    Very true about ER. Thanks for the info -- I'm going to try to find something similar for an Android.

    AndroVid can be used in a pinch, and I truly mean a pinch. It is little more than Windows Movie Maker, the original one not the one from Windows 7.

    For editing on a computer, I use iMovie (I have a Mac) or Hitfilm 4 Express. Hitfilm is free and available on Windows and Mac. I also have Lightworks that can be used portably on a flash drive stuck in whatever machine is handy. It is also free but lacks the compositor of Hitfilm. But if you are only looking to edit video on a phone, you aren't even remotely close to needing a compositor.

    Check out VideoEditors on Reddit for some expert hobbyist advice. Reddit.com/r/VideoEditors

    I use a Rode VideoMicro with a deadcat windscreen, and it works quite well in both normal and windy conditions. It's relatively inexpensive and lightweight, which is great for hiking. What setup are you currently using?

    Iím currently using a Sony ECM-B1M shotgun microphone with my Sony A7 III camera. Itís been fantastic for picking up clear audio even in noisy environments, and the built-in digital interface works seamlessly with my camera. The setup is a bit pricier and heavier, but it's been worth it for the audio quality. For hiking, though, your Rode VideoMicro sounds like a great choice due to its portability and effectiveness in windy conditions.

    By the way, if youíre into video editing and looking for some professional software, I found a useful article that reviews some of the best options available. You might find it helpful: https://www.movavi.com/learning-port...-software.html
