Was curious to see what microphones the other video guys have in their collections? Could be educational for discovering a new tool for the arsenal.

 

I'll post mine later.

 

Thanks.

Audio Technica AT-875r and Rode NTG-4. I also have a four channel wireless system from Audio Technica known as System 10 Pro, attached to those are 4 x Countryman B3's.

 

Between the 875r and the NTG-4, I'd say the 875 is better for indoor and the NTG-4 for outdoors or when you need to pick up sounds from a long way away. The System 10 is there mostly to capture dialogue on wide shots where a boom would not be practical. Never had any trouble with the System 10 pro's, despite them being 2.4GHz.

Got away with a prehistoric Sennheiser ME-80 for years.

 

Recently had a DPA 4017B on review and realised what the future really ought to hold...

 

Use an SE Electronics 2200A for voice over type stuff.

I broke their legs so they basically need to be in my audio kit if they want to survive.

Forgot to ask; Does that give you a nice vintage vibe? Or when going into solid state recorders does it just sound low quality?

It doesn't sound low quality, it just doesn't have nearly as much output as more modern devices, which I guess you could call a cut in quality given increased noise. Nothing outrageously wrong with it, though. I don't think the technology has massively changed.
