Re: Camera mounted mic

An interference tube means the capsule is X farther away than a non-interference tube mic. The further away the capsule is, the crappier the sound.

The interference tube rejects middle and low frequencies from the main lobe, but they are still very much in the off-axis areas, which is why an interference tube mic is a poor choice in reflective environments, whether inside or out.

Regards,

Re: Camera mounted mic

That's a good point. The interference tube "shotgun" mics are definitely in their element outdoors where there are no major reflections. For the most part indoors, particularly in rooms with lots of early relections, hypercardioid ( without the intereference sleeve) or even cardioid mics are generally a better choice

Re: Camera mounted mic

Like Chris Harding I am a huge fan of the Rode Videomic. Particularly if you are wanting to pick up sound from the sides and not just the front.

For Wedding Videography we use a Rode NTG-2 on our handheld cam that is up front near the officiant and bride and groom to catch audio as a backup to our wireless mics. We use either the Rode Videomic or the Rode Videomic Pro on our center wide shot cam as an overall emergency back up audio track and the Videomic's do an amazing job. I will not shoot a wedding without one of the Rode Videomic's mounted on something and recording as a backup to our other microphones and to capture general ambience.

Somebody mentioned the Audio Technica 875 as a choice and I have also read good things about it. Particularly if you are using a smaller camera since it is a short shotgun.
