  1. Ha ha, thanks Mike for bringing it back on the OP. I appreciate the varying options. Always good to feel the passion!!! I will spend a day or two at some sound folks to try out their favorite choices Will let you know, what choice I took All the best M
  2. Thanks everybody for your responses Yes Vin, I am looking for ONE Mic or a combined system, that can be used in one windshield system. I will see what Sennheiser will say. But even before the self noise was quite present in quieter ambiences. What are your experiences with the CMIT? Sounds like a great mic. Matthew thanks for the offer. I will see if I can get a hold of a CSS5 and hear what it sounds like. I tried the Audio Technica BP 4029 but couldn´t hear a difference to the 418s regarding self noise. After the crash of the 418 I used a 416 as a backup and added for ambiences a Sennheiser MKH 60 in 90° angle. Would you say, thats even a better option for ambience then the MS? I´m not talking about an ambience for a room or location after a dialog but an ambience of an atmospheric scene Thanks Moritz
  3. Hey everybody, on my last shoot my MKH 418S Sennheiser started to give me trouble. The 418 has its own noise anyway, but after a day on the ocean it felt like I imported the ocean to the land. The noise of the mic itself was unbearable. I will send the 418 to sennheiser to see if they can fix it. But maybe it´s time to look for alternatives. I´m mainly working on documentaries, a lot of times on remote places, with harsh conditions. I´m looking for a system, that is stable and that can be used for scenic situations, interviews and basic ambience at the same time. I know its a hard task;-) Any recommendations? Thanks Moritz
