Need Recomendation for an "Indoor" Dialog Microphone

It appears that the general consensus for dialog recording indoors is to use a hypercardiod microphone.

I wish to round out my equipment so that I can properly cover indoor dialog shoots.

I currently have an XL1s, Canon 3x, XL2 20x, 2 Neumann U87 ai, 2 Neuman KMS-105, Sennheiser MKH-70, full Rycote, Sound Devices 302, Mackie VLZ 1202, 3 Sennheiser Wireless, Vegas 6.0, and I have access to a Sennheiser MKH-60.

The Neuman KMS-105 is listed as supercardiod and is generally considered a vocalist's mic. I would assume that the Neuman KMS-105, although it is a supercardiod, is not suitable for booming. Of course, I may be wrong, as I have never tried it this way, but it is a "Vocalist's" mic.

I am open to suggestions to round out my equipment for proper sound recording dialog indoors.


What would you recommend to round out my package? I like to purchase quality equipment, hopefully so that I only have to purchase it once.

FWIW, one of the film industry mainstay hypercardioids for booming indoors is the Schoeps CMC641.

or an MKH-50 that would fit in your current shockmounts if you have specific Sennheiser clips and should match up well acoustically.
