Dear all, Hoping someone can recommend a mic for field recording with a portable minidisc (Sony MZ-RH10: mic input has phantom power). I want to record ambient audio and voice with the same mic (not necessarily at the same time) and after editing, to mix the audio under edited video i.e. becoming part of short video clips (ultimately destined for web and DVD). For the sake of portability I need a mic that'll plug straight into the MD with no pre in between. In addition, something that could be adapted to fit onto a camcorder accessory shoe would be useful. These will be entirely non-professional projects. I'm happy to spend between US$100 and $200 (that's £50-£100, I'm in the UK) and while I know you get what you pay for I'm looking for something that'll do the job since it's just a hobby and I suspect no one will bother putting headphones on to listen to my work with critical ears! Many thanks, Andrew. EDIT: I should add that I like the idea of a stereo mic, so long as it has decent separation without avoiding what happens directly ahead altogether, but expect this will push the price up a little. Recommendations for mono and stereo mics are welcome!
