Hmm...you think we'll all be using those old fashioned "microphones" in 2013? ;-)

Excellent, excellent work Dan. I cant remember when I saw a side by side with so many mics included. Helps people make choices or reaffirm those already made.

I have to say I am guilty of using a boom mounted shotgun indoors a lot, because I use the CS3 and its incredibly versatile in this manner. And when I switch from an an Interior to Exterior, my sound whilst different because of ambience has a similar quality to it across the board. I find if I need to I can fake other components where needed.

Our microphones are probably the only things that won't be obsolete in 2013. :)

Hi Noel:

So glad that you like the article, doing all of that recording and playing back was a real ear opener for me as well. Nothing like hands-on testing to really help you decide what you like. Unfortunately I really fell in love with about half of the mics, but I did the math and I don't have a spare $10k for mics burning a hole in my pocket ;-)

The CS-3e is a really nice mic, I am sure that it records some great sound for you.

All my best,

Dan

Just finished

Hi all:

Just wanted to let all of you know that I just delivered a show to a client today that was shot with the Audio-Technica AT875r, the lowest cost mic I tested. It sounds very good, I am so impressed with this little microphone. Mostly just interviews but in a real, pretty noisy location. The end results were superb.

Best,

Dan

Hello Dan, and thank you for your effort to deliver such amount of audio info about the mics. Also I want to ask you if I can connect an AT875r to a HDR HC1. Do it work if I'll connect it directly to my cam(no phantom power) or do I have to provide ph power to it? Can you recommend me a suitable mic for my HC1 if this AT875r it's not good?
Thank you,
Alin
