I've been using a USB headset and an external web camera both connected to a laptop to record educational videos. The way I record the videos is by looking directly at the web camera which is located on top of an external monitor connected to a laptop. A visual example can be seen in an example photo below.
I'd like to stop wearing a headset, and instead, record using a microphone. There are great USB microphones and Lavalier microphones out there such as the Rode SmartLav+, but I have an sE Electronics ProMic Laser microphone lying around not being used and I'd like to put it to use if possible instead of buying another microphone.
Would it be feasible to create a setup that would allow this microphone to be used for such a purpose and for those who know all the ins and outs of this topics, what accessories would you recommend getting? Can this microphone go on a swivel mount and be placed just next to the external web camera? Would anything else be needed?
