As any videographer will tell you, audio quality is paramount for high-quality video. While many visual missteps can be easily forgiven, poor-quality sound is perhaps the most obvious way in which otherwise-professional footage is dragged down.

Your camera’s built-in microphones are designed for convenience rather than quality, and will only get you so far, but the solution is neither cumbersome nor costly. The Olympus LS-P4 is designed for high-quality, dynamic recording, and it’s one of the first linear PCM recorders to record in the FLAC format.
