Theoria Apophasis has kindly produced a video where he talks about the leading industry standard video microphones.
I tend to agree with Theoria when he says, bang for buck if you could only have one mic, the Sennheiser ME66 microphone with K6 combo is the one to get. In fact I have two.
Also I personally don’t care for the Rode NTG1 and NTG2 microphones build quality or sound quality… Not one bit, but the NT3 stands up in my opinion.
Sennheiser MKH416 vs Sennheiser ME66 vs. ME64 vs RODE NTG3 vs RODE NTG2 vs NTG1
A “new” type of shotgun microphone comparison by someone that owns most of the high-end microphones. (I did leave the Sanken out of this specific review for now).
