I know everybody hates the microphone questions =), but I decided to get myself a propoer shotgun mic for capturing SFX and maybe dialogue (outside). I already searched the web and SSD but I still need to ask, because my question haven`t been answered yet.
Right know I have a Rode NT4, a SM57 a cheap contact mix and a Rode NT1 plus my Tascam HDP2. Now, as I said above, I want to buy a proper shotgun mic. My budget would be around 1,9K $ or 1,6K €.
So my plan is to rent some shotgun mics and see which one I like most and here comes the actual question. So far I want to rent a MKH416, a Sanken CS3e (hard to get here) and a Neumann KMR 81. Do you have any other mics in mind that I should rent and compare to the oter three?
Thanks and I hope you people don`t hate me for asking this kind of question =)
