The company that I work for wants me to be able to record as close to true to life audio of our snowmobiles as we can for as low budget that I can manage (low budget meaning under $200 for the audio setup).
The equipment that they would like me to find a mic compatible for would need to be able to work with an iPhone8 and a Nikon D750 and be able to be used for field shooting (stationary sound clips as well as in motion) as well as audio recorded inside of the shop (very large high ceiling machine shop).
The problem that I've been facing up until this point is the mic being peaked by the dB produced by the sled. The sleds will be producing dBs from as little as 50dB up to 140dB and the built-in mic just can't handle it.
I want to be able to find a mic that will (by some miracle) fit what my employers would like to see within their budget.
Any suggestions on distances to record at, mics within that budget, editing that could improve the audio quality, or general methods that would be recommended I try would be greatly appreciated.
