CONTROLLING SOUND MANUALLY AND REMOVING HISSING NOISES

You can always remove a bit of the noise with Adobe Audition:
But the problem often lies in how you record the audio using your microphone. The first thing we want to do is to turn off automatic sound recording. The camera will try and compensate for quiet moments by turning up the sensitivity and that creates a static floor noise.
Then you pair it with a microphone with a built in amplifier.
Make sure you use a set of headphones with your DSLR. This way, you can hear and check the audio levels.

…and make sure the audio doesn’t get muffled in clothes and that levels aren’t too high.
Portable recorders suitable for almost everything. They can be plugged into the camera, if you want to, but I use them as external microphones either for recording foley sounds or for making a voiceover/interview.
