For the past 4 years, Ive used all Rode gear, especially the NTG3, which I grew to love. Then, on a recent shoot for a client, it stopped working. I got it fixed and it remains an important part of my arsenal, but the experience made me think about an upgrade, and then using the NTG3 as a backup.
This Sennheiser MHK8060 has a real nice flat line sound across all frequencies. I have used it for outdoor video shoots and it effectively reduces the surrounding background noise and wind when booming it over my subject and using a Rycote Windshield WS3.
Bought this after doing a ton of research on comparable shotgun mics. A very sturdy workhorse designed as an update of the MKH416. It sounds really excellent and has the advantage of being compact.
Beautiful, clean and clear sounding. I use this mic for recording bird songs in the Pacific NW. It yields a nice, finely detailed recording that I've been pleased to see extends well above 32k (as visualized in iZotope's RX, recorded at 96k and 192k).
I chose the MKH 8060 shotgun to use with my Canon XF100 for run & gun situations. It is a great match for size and weight. It is only 7 inches long. I have only used the mic a few times so I cannot comment on the sound quality yet, however I understand that it is comparable to the MKH-416, which is...
great microphone, would recommend to a friend
I bought this back in early 2015 and it has NEVER let me down! So forgiving on your subject being a little off-axis! I used this mic up in the mountains where it was dead silent and that's where it REALLY shined!
Pros: Good rejection in small size, high output, low noise, has less off axis harshness or thinness, reasonable max SPL rating and immunity to moisture.Cons: Off axis dullness. See the polar pattern for 16kHz, post 15 degrees off axis, it falls off drastically compared to other frequencies, this is...
The MKH 416 gets most of the attention in most discussions about shotguns due to its longevity, but I think the 8060 blows it away in terms of sound quality. In comparison it's also much more tonally forgiving if the sound source moves off-axis which is a big deal to me.
Used for SFX recording in the studio and in the field. Great s/n ratio, no color, great off-axis rejection. Does everything it says on the tin.
