Hello all.

Cinematographer here, looking for a good piece of SOund kit.
Came acroos with the ME 66 as a affordable/reliable mic for interview recording and all purpose sound recorder:

 

http://www.amazon.co...ennheiser ME 66

 

There's the ME 67 as well... And many others.

But my question is... Which would be a great piece to invest (£100 more or less makes no difference). And what is actually the POWERING MODULE, Is it necessary/should I but it as well to use in a production/interviews in a documentary?

I would have a sound recordist anywa, but instead of paying rent for the equipment, I'd rather buy one that could be a pro equipment still, not necessarily the best around, but anything closer is fine.


Thanks,

Flavio

A quick check of the Sennheiser website and instructions shows you have a choice - use it with the "K6-P" if you have ready access to a 48V phantom power supply, or use it with the "K6" if you want the choice of also using an AA battery as well as 48V.

Understandably the 48V only option is cheaper, but the dual supply version is potentially more versatile.

ME 66/67 are great low cost alternatives to, say, a 416.

I have both a 66 and a 67 and they've paid formthemselves many times over.

As a,workhorse mic for your camera bag, I'd say yes.
