Hey guys (and gals). I work solo for 90% of my work and have been shooting a lot of interviews (exteriors) with Sennheiser MKH 8060s mounted to boom poles which are sitting on stands. Both of my 8060s are equipped with MZF 8000 modules. I also use Sanken COS-11D lavs as backups sent wirelessly to my Sony UWP-D11 wireless kits. A lot of my interviews are two person interviews, so I've been using two booms and two lavs like this, one set for each person, and it's worked great.
Lately I've been having to shoot a lot of my work indoors, so obviously I need to move away from the gun mics for most of those times due to room reflections. Because of this, I've recently added a matched set of MKH 8040s to my kit as well as one MKH 8050 for single person interviews. My thinking was that the wider cardioid pattern of the two 8040s would make my inside interviews more forgiving when/if the two people I'm interviewing move around while interacting with each other, thus keeping them from falling out of the mic too easily. I thought that the 8050 would also be great to have for when I'm just working with one person and can keep them positioned in one spot when shooting interviews for commercial work, thus allowing me to have more rejection than the 8040s and a little longer reach so I can go wider if necessary on my framing.
I was wanting to post this here to see if this was a good move or not. I'm a professional shooter, but am not going to claim to be a pro audio guy, so I'm asking here to make sure that my thinking was ok. I want the highest quality possible for my projects, so I'm wanting to see if this was a good path. Thanks!
