Among the things we looked for in the internet was an audio recorder. By the money we saved from buying the Canon 550D camera we wanted to buy other important stuff. One of the main issues of any independent film is the audio quality. After surfing a lot the internet and looking for different products we fell in love with the Zoom H4n handy recorder. It is a 4 channel mixer with sd cards and its price is really great (300$). You can know more about it in the following link:

Ahmed Ragab a friend of us offered to buy it for the film so that we can even save the money for other stuff we need. Another friend was going to USA a couple of months ago to attend a few days workshop so we asked him to order it from amazon and bring it with him back to Egypt. We thought it would be easier and cheaper this way but unfortunately the Zoom H4n arrived after he left and up till this moment we are looking for a way to get it back to Egypt.
