Folks seem to have better luck with the shotgun mics than I do. You really need to get it in pretty close to get good levels. Was the hiss noticeable during recording? If you are using the adobe suite they have a pretty decent noise reduction in the audio software portion. It might be in your best interest to look around for a video forum as most of us on here are dealing with live production audio.

Is the noise:
A) ambient noise, breeze blowing, HVAC compressor, traffic, etc.,
or
B) electronic noise?
All electrical/electronic devices, microphones, recorders, etc. have some system noise.
If you are far from the noise source and you have to crank up the sensitivity on your recorder, you are also cranking up the system noise.
At some point, the system noise is audible.

As Ben noted, the most improvement might come from getting a microphone or two in closer to the sound source.
This will reduce both ambient noise picked up, and system noise.

Thanks and good health, Weogo
