Where can I find a Cheaper Shotgun Boom Mic Kit?

Hi guys,

I'm shopping for a "Shotgun Boom Mic Kit" which is very reasonable in price for someone at a starting point in business. can you advise any with a kit?
I found this one at model B&H Azden # SGM-1X for $149.00 but that is just the mic and no kit. Here is a link to this mic:

Do you recommend this Mic?
Also, where can I find the rest of the kit for a reasonable price or can I build something to make it work?
Thanks,

ZIA

Cheaper Mic?

That one you linked to seems a pretty good buy to me. If you are going to be in business, you are going to have to spend money, and a mic like that is a lot cheaper than starting with a radio microphone setup.

Here's one I've been looking at, and thinking of buying.

At the moment I've been using an external mic on a long cable, but someone nearly tripped over the cable at the last wedding I did, so time to try something different. Can anyone point me to a good wireless mic setup for camcorders?

Take a look at the Rode Videomic. It's in your price range, and Rode makes several inexpensive accessories for it: boompole, windmuff, XLR adapter plug, etc.

FOr wireless, look at Sennheiser G2100ENG kits. I like the one with transmitter, receiver, and butt-plug transmitter to plug into an XLR mic. Lets you boom wirelessly....
