The CS-1 is a great indoor mic.

HI

thanks for all your replies. It really is a pain in the c-ass-corder!! I went through this when I had to buy a midi controller and nearfield monitors. I also know that it isn't always better to buy the most expensive. YOu can achieve the best if you know how to handle your tools. SO The SAnken c1 sounds amazing (lots of bass there) and the price is well....mmmm....it is no mcdonalds PRIce , that is for sure. But I like eating at Mcdonalds so jezz.. I dont know. A good 3 ccd camcorder alone is lots of money to me and I know if you want to achieve good results, audio IS one of the most important elements in a movie. I can handle effects, mixing, mastering, midi and audio like no other, so I know the tricks, but 750 dollars for a mic...mmm...I should wait a little bit longer to save more money for the mic and buy everything at once (maybe second hand).

I am in pain now, so I have to sleep this paing off with a good happy deep dream about being scorsese with a xl2 or dvx.

Go over to freelancer and listen. All of the clips were indoor. Compare the hyper and the shotguns.

The more you pay the better it gets but the hyper will still do better on a confined space.

The CS-3 and the Schoeps are the same price pretty well. It's all subjective. I took the time to post uncompressed audio, you take the time and listen.

According to the specs the ME-66 has the same frequency range as the CS-3. The only difference a slight increase int he 3000-5-- hz range of the me-66. This can be fixed with free VST-plugins which you can use in yoru audio editor. Roll it off and you have a pretty good sound. Add a compressor and you have a deeper steady sound like the CS-3 (sample). :) Hope that helps. But test them out yourself in a shop.
