Tutorial: DIY Camera Muff

Here is a quick tutorial on how to beat wind noise when you need better audio on a DSLR. This is no substitute for an external on camera shotgun and defiantly no substitute for hiring a location sound mixer for your shoot. But if posts workflow is puraleyes this will help make the reference track  more useful to your editor.

Make sure your fabric is backed by breathable fabric and not waterproof tight weaved fabric.

Side note: This method of adhereing fur can also be used on your walkie talkie to help clear up communications on windy sets. Just remember not to cover the air holes of the microphone opening with the butyl tape.
