Could really use some insight on purchasing a shotgun mic.
The particulars :
* Documentary that shoots interviews/performances entirely on green screen.
* 30x30ft studio
* We also do a bit of commercial work with less than contained sets
* Have enjoyed the 416 but it has been difficult to isolate the echo of the room even though it is not a sparse location either
I'm stuck between picking up an MKH8060 which I can pick up for a decent price, or an MKH50 which while I cannot find a good deal on, seems to be more specific to the work we do on a daily basis.
I would love to hear anyone's experiences with either mics. Been concerned with some faulty stories on the 8060, and that it seems too specific to interiors. Wouldn't want to be shy with taking it on location either if necessary.
The rental cost of audio is just adding up considering we film 3-4 days a week, and it seems like I either need to commit to the 416, MKH50, or 8060.
Again, any help would be - super helpful.
