Sound test of Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic on Kodak Zi8 Pocket HD Videocamera.
- Kodak Zi8 Internal Mic
- Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic - Normal (-)
- Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic - High (+)
In this video is used a tripod to hold the Kodak Zi8 and a Monopod to hold the Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic.
You can also use a bracket to hold the camera, mic and optional light.
The Zi8 has a great mic at close distances, for times when the speaker is further away, or when you want to capture audio from more than one person at a time, the Sennheiser MKE 400 Shotgun Mic is a good choice. It's also much more compact thatn the comparable Rode Video Mic.
