Sennheiser ME66/K6 Short Shotgun
Providing twice the SPL output in tests of mics in it’s class, this has been our choice for an excellent quality shotgun. Compare to Audio Technica AT-897 when comparison shopping. This is the mic used in DVcreators.net products like the demo sample here.
Keep in mind that this mic has become an industry standard over the last few years. You’ll probably go through a few cameras as technology evolves, but you’ll keep the same shotgun mic throughout the years.
Any video production industry veteran will give this sage advice – usually acquired after years of learning the hard way. Audio is 50% of the project. Make sure you get the absolute best audio you can – don’t ever spend the whole budget on a really nice camera, think about the two things that are going to make your project more professional: high quality audio and lights.
The ME 66 is a Super-cardioid shotgun microphone capsule designed for use with the K6 powering module with power supplied by battery or phantom power. It is especially suitable for reporting, film and broadcast location applications and for picking up quiet signals in noisy or acoustically live environments as it discriminates against sound not emanating from the main pick-up direction. Matte black, anodized, scratch-resistant finish.
Super-cardioid/lobar pick-up pattern
Low inherent self-noise
