I honestly do best with my EV interview mic, and it was one of the cheaper ones. I can sit in a dance hall at a wedding with the music blaring and the audio comes through from the subject crystal clear and the background noise is cut out considerably. That requires holding a mic of course, but if you want great audio that is my suggestion. Lav mics are not bad either, but if you conceal them they tend to get muffled a bit and are more prone to scratching from clothes etc. If you don’t conceal them – then why not just use the interview mic?
My Rode shotgun mic is okay if you absolutely need to pick something up from a distance with no set-up, but even that mic picks up way more ambient noise than I like.
