Hi everyone. I was wondering how reliable a Schoeps CMC6 with the MK41 capsule would be in a place like Hong Kong? I'm sure some of you have been there working and know the climate but for those who haven't... it's pretty humid and there is a lot of moisture everywhere, all the time. I'll be capturing sound for an independent feature film to be shot in Macao (across the river from Hong Kong) and I need to get a super/hyper for lots of interior dialogue scenes. Renting is not really practical because we'll be shooting for a month. And I rather just invest in a good microphone for future productions. I don't have any experience with this microphone and I've been reading here that it can have problems with moisture. But I'd like to know just how bad the moisture has to be to really affect the microphone. I'm only asking because I have someone who has a used schoeps cmc6 mk41 for sale with a cut 1 filter here in Portugal and I'm tempted to take the plunge but I don't want to plunge into a sea of problems. I would get an mkh50 but suddenly the prices on the 50 went up to 1900 euros here and the 8050 is sold out everywhere. Thanks in advance everyone.
