Can you get a good microphone for feature films for around $800 - $850? If so, which? (Should be good for action, normal indoors filming and normal outdoors filming.)

  • What does "good" mean here? Reliable? Established? Versatile? Durable? – Warrior Bob Feb 17 '12 at 15:45
  • One I can use to make a film as close as possible to a feature film. – Friend of Kim Feb 17 '12 at 17:29
  • Have you considered renting microphones instead? Microphones are like camera lenses - there isn't one magic mic that will do everything you want. You can find a lot of good information by googling, but eventually you are going to have to do some experiments of your own. – ObscureRobot Feb 18 '12 at 7:50

If you want to shoot on location then get a shotgun mic with a boom. If you want to overdub the voice over in a studio, then get a large diaphragm condenser mic.
