How can I eliminate background noise from my camera when I shoot video?

Alan from Minnesota
Rode VideoMic Pro

The problem with using the camera's internal mic is that it picks up motor noise from the camera. When shooting video on a DSLR, Leo recommends using an external mic that can plug into the mini-jack on the camera. Leo uses an adapter from Beachtek that he can connect to the camera so that he can plug in professional microphones.

Another good option is the Rode VideoMic which plugs right into the mini-jack and mounts onto the hotshoe.
