Mics for Gl-1

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

I am looking to get a mic for a GL-1. Checking out the Sennheiser ME66 and MKE300. Any opinions or ideas for mics.

I'm very pleased with the Samson UM1 wireless with ECM55 sony lavalier mic. Purchased from B&H. It's available with several levels of Sony mics. While the plastic housings for transmitter and receiver are not professional heavy duty, they're holding up well. If you get recommendations on a good shotgun mic for the GL1, I'd be interested.

I have been using the AT835ST shotgun mic with my GL1 and it has been fantastic. It is a stereo mic and needs phantom power. I use a MixPad4 four channel mixer with it which can be run off of 3 9-volt batteries (which is quite handy in the field).
