Which microphone are you using on your HDR-HC1?

To continue my "which ... are you using on your HDR-HC1" series of posts, I would like to hear your opion on microphones. Sony is offering two models in my country: The ECM-HGZ1 Gun Zoom Microphone and the ECM-HST1 Stereo Microphone. I have no idea what the big difference is. I would like to hear if everyone has experience with these two microphones.

Furthermore, I have read some good things about the Rodeo Mic or something. Can someone fill me in on this one?

I am also a great fan of Sennheiser gear. Which microphones they are offering are appropriate for the HDR-HC1? I read that you might need an adapter for many microphones, who can tell me more about this?

As always, I really appreciate your feedback!

new Ohrwurm/ear worm stereo microfon

I have some sennheiser microphones tested however at the housing of the hc1 gave it also many interferences of the drive assembly. I developed for high-quality sounds (nature noises or music instruments) a stereo microphone "Ohrwurm" for the fx1 or hc1 (or Minidisc), this in the ear was then carried! With this Ohrwurm you have a great binaurale soundsystem......superlinear 20-20.000Hz +-1,5dB. http://www.fxsupport.de/hc1/hc1_5.html ....to make excellent quality surround recordings with your HC1. (translate with babelfish the blog 24.11.2005 14:28)

sample sound's (mp3) from ohrwurm here: http://www.fxsupport.de/hc1/ohrgerman.html Also some TV-station use the "ear worm" with fx1.

on my sides I write also over the hc1 and various sennheiser microphones. the old me80 (ebay) is a great zoom micro for the camcorder......

Same here, I live in the Netherlands so I can even pick them up if you like. It might cost me a day of driving but I don't mind that.

I am looking forward to hear something from you.

Ohrwurm

Earworm within Europe is no problem dispatches that. An earworm is on the way to Australia, times sees whether this arrives also there. The price for "Ohrwurm HC1/FX1" is international 51,50 Euro, in Germany 49 Euro. More info: www.fxsupport.de/hc1/ohrgerman.html (German)

Here a short earworm test of a customer:

Yes.
I do not have experience like for a long time the journey abroad with DHL last. An earworm is on the way to Australia that is a good test. How can one pay favorably to Germany? Money-Transfer? Paypal?

Within European Union you can pay using bankgiro. I purchased a indie-movie from finland by just paying through my Internet bank. Outside of Europe you either have to use Swift money transfer or Paypal or something. I don't know what fee's Paypal have and when they pay out the money. They have a kind of minimum 50 euro fee or something when they pay out the money.

I called straight my bank. The "Deutsche Bank" cannot help me, the fees is nearly as highly as the entire ear worm costs!
Now i look to Paypal.....

I have used pay-pal to send money to other countries before. As long as your account is set up on your side. Another idea is to list it on e-bay.
