alright, here’s the most helpful site i’ve seen about shotguns:
it has some comparisons between shotgun mics, and i found it pretty helpful.
Right now I own a Rode NTG-2, which works great for its price. XLR connections w/ phantom power or AA batt.
If I had more money, however, it would of been a bit more wise to invest in the Sennheiser ME66 . I’ve gotten to use it, and its a really solid, very clear microphone, with very little noise.
Remember, unlike video cameras which get outdated pretty quickly, microphones will last for a long time, so make sure you invest in it wisely!
