shotgun mics under $100
okay, it's looking like I need to stay under 100 dollars for a starter shotgun mic. I need something I can put on a boom and get at least passible audio with. I've found a few models in this range, and was just wondering if anyone had any experience with any of them. First, there are a couple azdens in this range: the ecz990 and the smx-10, and there's also the sgm-x that I could probably afford at $110 (but that's the absolute cutoff price). Then, there's the Audio Technica 6550 (they're actually selling a kit at the moment that includes the 6550, and 8' articulated boom pole, and 25' for 99.95). Anyone with information on any of these miss, or a similar priced one? I was hoping to go with a Rode Videomic, but there's just too much I have left to get.
