Preamp Selection

Understand Your Camera

The first step in selecting a preamp is to understand the needs of your camera.  Does you camera have headphones and meters, or is it lacking some of these features?  Where will you be mounting the preamp (directly to the camera, to a spot on your rig)?  Are your mic inputs unbalanced (such as the unbalanced minijack mic inputs on DSLRs) or balanced (such as on the BMCC)?
