    Forget the gophers, the quality of the video is really good! What kind of camera? Is it a PTZ?

    I've always wanted to hook up a microphone to my PTZ. Can you send me links adapters as well, here is my PTZ. Its an Amcrest (Dahua OEM) and it has the MIC connection, see picture.

    Sure this is what you need https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LYV4AWL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 You also need a powered AC adapter for the microphone https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VRL632/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And possibly an RCA extension cable and possibly an extension cable for the power although it has a six-foot cable with the power by itself.

    Mic volume might be a tad too high. High pitch birds are giving feedback

    Picture quality is awesome like always with the Dahua PTZ

    Try changing the sampling frequency down to 16000 and turn mic volume to 50.. I just mess with it til it sounds right to be. Play with it

    So running it at 48,000 doesn't really improve things that much?
