I’m looking to pick up some kind of shotgun mic for man-on-the-street style interviews and whatnot.
What’s everyone’s opinion on the best moderatly priced one? I want something where I can, if something cool and random comes up, I can just point and be happy that I have great sound.
What type of mic connector does your camcorder accept, XLR or mini-plug?
Also, were you planning on hand-holding the mic? Some mics are specially designed to minimize handling noise (but at the moment, I don’t recall any such mics being shotgun mics).
I like my little rode mic.
The foam windscreen isn’t terrible, but I throw a fur muff over it for windy conditions.
my fur "dead cat" was made by my daughter. I don’t have the heart to tell her where fake fur REALLY comes from. ((they skin Teddy Bears!) Horrible to witness, Really,….fluff and buttons everywhere).
