When you watch a press conference on TV, the cameras in the room seem to make a huge amount of noise when they take shots. Most of the mics are set up at the podium and probably cardiod so that they reject sound from the background. Of course there are mics in the room for the press to ask questions. The camera sound is so loud that its almost seems like they have mics on the cameras ! I find this really annoying and was just curious if anyone knows what going on with this.
