I shot my entire film with the camera mic, which did a great job for the most part, but I do need to re-shoot some scenes. I'm looking into a boom mic. Are these the basic ingredients?

- boom mic
- boom pole
- wind muff

Anyone know how much all this stuff should run me? I'm not opposed to going the used route on Amazon, either.

You gotta grip the boom pole.

You gotta grip the boom pole.

Rather than make silly jokes, can you guys offer me some help?

You'll also need an XLR or some sort of audio cable to run to the camera. In addition, some boom poles come with shock mounts, which are where the mic mounts to the pole. Make sure yours does, or buy it.

You get what you pay for with sound equipment, so it's best not to go low end. This is a good kit for the buck, but I'd nix the soft case and buy a Pelican case. I find myself using a Mafer or double Mafer to mount the boom for stationary recording.
