How To: Prevent noisy camera videos with a band-aid


Web site PopPhoto has a simple hack for avoiding the ubiquitous windy-audio compact camera video: just use a band-aid.

I made a windscreen for my compact's microphone from the gauze-like padding of an adhesive bandage. Taped over the mic's tiny port, the "screen" does an admirable job of muffling, even eliminating, the sound of wind from my videos.

This isn't rocket science, but it's a smart idea that should help improve the listenability of those outdoor, in-camera video tremendously.
