ME66 good with my DVX100AE ???

I am about to buy a DVX100AE and was recommended a ME66 K6 mic to go with this by a very experienced and reputable firm of film makers and suppliers here in London. I have seen on a discussion that people are saying this is NOT a good mic for this camera - it is too "hot". Do they mean the 100 - is it actually okay on the latest model the 100AE? Why was I told this was a great mic for the camera?

Thanks for your help.

Confused of London!

I've thinking about this microphone also. Can you tell me what you mean with "too hot"? It won't be the temperature, but has it got to do with the sensitivity and overdriving the dynamics of the audio-range?

thanks for the very fast response!

So which microphones do you recommend also? I am looking for a crip sound quality indoors and also a mic that won't record too much of the echo/ambience of the voice/sounds in a room, so it must be some kind of directional mic device. Any thoughts?

Best regards,

Peter

Your short film was able to draw an emotional response from me :) thats a good shot when you can do that..

Is lady x still something others can still get involved in? Or is it over?? I saw no dates there//....

Hi Scott,

For BitterSweet I used my new Panasonic DVX100 PAL, but you could guess that from this forum.

The older projects (ZZZAP, Lady X, Memefeeder, Cokeman) have been shot with the Sony TRV30 PAL (a 1 ccd consumer camcorder). For Lady X and ZZZAP I used a special build in digital effect of the Sony, called slow shutter in mode 1. This gives a kind of film look with this consumer machine, very weird.

The Lady X project has been finished. Check their website for updates and info. There is still one final closing episode coming from the guys who won the best episode award. They are working on that right now.

I'm off to bed now, otherwise this will all get an emotional response from me.

Best regards,
Peter

Thanks for your help. Do you know if there is a site where you can compare the outputs, tech specs, reviews of some of these different mics? Thanks
