When he said sit down interviews with a mic at knee level pointing up I thought not. Could be wrong though.

Of that scenario is ugly in or outdoors.

Right Al, "I use a mic stand that I place in front of the talent at knee height and have the mic pointed directly at their face"
-- That's pretty bizarre.

Yeah sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

So what decision have you made?

Re: Whats the best Shotgun Mic for under $700?

Mr. Bronte has never returned to this conversation. From my POV, he never justified why he thinks that a new microphone is the solution. He appears to reveal that he is not using his current microphone in an optimal deployment. It seems possible that even if he got a new microphone of whatever cost, he might still think it "could be better" because his problem is technique and not equipment at all.

For that matter, we don't even know whether his current recordings are "broadcast quality" or not. Maybe he is recording in a terrible place with ambient noise and reflections and expecting anechoic ADR sound because that's what he hears in the movie theatre?

Now, the discussion of "Whats the best Shotgun Mic for under $700?" might be interesting (or not), but it does not appear to be Mr. Bronte's real question, at least IMHO.
