After extensive research and willingness to replace the less sensitive RODE NTG2 shotgun mic, I decided to go with this mic. I bought it for the express purposes of using it with making short films and web series. I've done a few tests and love using this mic.
I have nothing bad to say about this mic - the quality is amazing and is perfect for any video/film professional. My favorite part is that it has a pretty hot output so you don't have to have another preamp going into your recorder.
I was frankly blown away by the rich tonal quality of this microphone for my production purposes. I've watched a lot of review videos and read some reviews elsewhere and I am impressed by the quality of this microphone that costs less than the industry standard Sennheiser MKH416.
This mic is absolutely amazing! I use it for video interviews mostly and it always sounds so clear. I bought a wireless lav at the same time as this, but I haven't even used it yet, because this is just so good.
This mic is phenomenal! I've been using it for indoor interviews and outdoor b-roll shots. It gives me a perfect consistent quality recording with low to minimal background noise. I would recommend spending the money to get this mic if you are doing video professionally.
I purchased this for use in Filmmaking after I've rented and used this Microphone on a recent short film I shot and it does outperform the rest of the microphones I had on my list for consideration: The Sennheiser MKH 416, the Audio Technica AT8035 and AT8015 as well as the Sennheiser ME 66.
Excellent mic for the money. Can't complain. The build appears to be a single piece of machined aluminum, with a little connection point toward the bottom, which is really nice.
Great, balanced sound on this. Side by side with my entry level (sub $200) shotgun this thing is night and day. So clear. So smooth. I'd recommend anyone wondering what mic to buy with a bit of coin in their pocket pick this up.
For the price this sounds just as good as the rival MKH416. Use it for commercial ads, corporate videos, etc.. Very happy with my purchase of this microphone.
During a week long shoot my producer had headphones on listening to the talent and himself doing some Q&A, he was so impressed with the warm rich sound and the audio quality of this mic that he is ordering one for himself. That says it all.
