    V-Mic D3 Pro

    Aputure is being active, for sure. Just can't really place their products to my workflow. I am sure they sell well to people that put image as their first priority, while have a minimum budget for sound, and these are the vast majority.

    Is this relevant to our job? Or is it just for cameramen?Is it a poor man's CS-1M?

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    What about reflections indoors? Is it "behaving" similar to an MKH50? And what about outdoors, does it "cut" it through the noises?

    Deity Connect.

    What about it? Does it have? How much?!

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    You are not hijacking. This is a very important aspect, and the microphone it is so new that we need all the experiences we can get. What is your opinion about the reach, acoustic quality, indoors vs outdoors, this vs other well known mics? What mounting and air protecting accessories are you using?

    The HG is "harder" so can put a softie in front, I have the 7 and is too "soft" even for more basic configurations. I will probably buy just the HG lyres and replace them on the mount.

    I, too, am between the 2 Sanken's. There are plenty of aforementioned solutions from all makers. Bubblebee Spacer XS fits, a few Rycote solutions, (WS10 probably)/a Rycote special for Sanken (including the softie) and the most advanced idea I have seen, that can be mounted easily on a camera, the Cinela Cosi (watch the video).

    Rycote Super Blimp NTG

    Just a little update. The box in the outside says "Suitable for following models: Rode NTG1, NTG2, NTG3, NTG4+ DPA 4017B NEUMANN KMR81i, SANKEN CS-2 SCHOEPS CMIT 5U SENNHEISER MKE 600, MKH 416" My guess is that Rycote is right, this is suitable for the aforementioned mics! The choice of colors make it a bit more desirable in style, it does seem like a cheaper version of a proper windshield, and I do not think it does such a good job, but for the price, and most jobs, I believe it is sufficient. I enjoy and like it more than the Rode one, no question about it, but it isn't cheaper than the Rode (here in Europe at least), but then, it is almost half price of the other Rycotes. I tried to fit my Audix, its diameter is 21mm and it seemed like it could open permanently the Lyres (which again, seem like a cheaper version from harder plastic than the original ones), but it could be possible to fit it there (there are some options of where to put the lyres, but just a few) if a back pod was added at the front, and maybe add the windjammer from the WS10, or something, but that takes a lot of extras (the pod only is something around 50-55euros). My interest lies to the fact that the Sanken CS-M1 has the same length as the Audix, but it is 19mm in diameter (so, fits exactly and with no violence the Super shield's Lyres), so maybe a mod of this design is appropriate for the budget conscious (the Cosi and the WS10 cost around 550euros, with the Cosi having many advantages, but one significant disadvantage, can't take the fur out, or anything at all, for when going inside). In general, I am happy with my purchase, it is going to be my backup/B/lower budgeted jobs blimp and it certainly does the job, while it is a bit smaller (both in diameter and length) than my Sennheiser one, so it could fit easily my K-Tek BLT35 bag for those endeavors that need a light setup!

    As far as wind protection, there is a known "hack/mod" that one can add a rear pod to a Rycote super shield kit. That could probably do the trick also. Just a thought!

    Windscreen Rycote or BUBBLEBEE Industries

    What is your impression vs a classic softie and/or a classic Rycote basket solution?

    What is your spare recorder

    Does it have a new firmware update a la F8?

    Boom Pole Quick Connect

    @TimoK thanks for the insight. I noticed you have 2 specialized adapters (1 for Cyclone and 1 for classic designs). I have 2 questions, and one request, 1) are those mandatory, or the tips are just fine? 2) is the adapter compatible with the super shield? Can we have a chart/table with all the basic Rycote solutions and the plus/minuses of each? Cheers. Pan.

    What about the Spacer? Seems like a nicer design than a classic softie, and milder for indoor use.

    Thank you very much for your review. Do you normally use a smaller hyper for indoors? Can you compare the CS-M1 with any other mic for in/out-doors?

    Rycote Super Blimp NTG

    Seems like a good compromise (for the money) between the usual WS4 and the For 416 kit, and the much cheaper Rode. Rycote WS4 700gr 440mm Rycote 416 500gr 180mm x 370mm x 104mm Rycote NTG 560gr 150mm x 410mm x 100mm Rode 550gr 285mmH x 490mmW x 125mmD
