This isn't exactly a question but I thought it was cool information to know about Schoeps mics:
I was at NAB this year and I saw the new SuperCMIT shotgun (digital shotgun which is super-directional with different noise cancelling settings)
Anyway, the Schoeps staff member there said it was specifically made for the World Cup games so the TV broadcasters could hear the ball being kicked. That's the only reason they made it in the first place. They ordered 50 of them. Then, they decided to release it on the market.
The soccer sound guys were trying to figure out how to get a mic near the ball or around it and even inside the ball (which was my suggestion) but as we know the ball is sacred and must not be messed with. So they asked Schoeps to design a mic that was super-directional and so now we have the SuperCMIT.
I just thought that was kind of cool trivia.
