  1. This is my first prototype of a foam “hollow in the middle” windscreen. I like the Schoeps B5d “hollow” windscreen, but wanted a simmular windscreen for the MKH50/40. With the addition of the windscreen to my kit I am no longer limited to my Cinela Leonard or just the standard foam windscreen. One of the most difficult parts to source was a plastic sleeve that would not scratch the microphone's finish. Now for some testing.
  2. About a year ago I landed my first indie feature and picked up the short and long Deity shotguns based on the 416 capsule. The long shotgun functions just like I remember the 416T and the short shotgun is very versatile. However I came across some issues in my application of the short shotgun (RFI and handling) and am looking for a new primary indoor and interview mic. Looking at what I need it seems as though the MKH-50 is the obvious choice but I wanted to run it by you guys to see if there is anything else you would recommend. I don't have access to any rentals, dealers or distributors in my state, so testing mics side by side is not an option. I hoping your experiences can help guide me in the right direction so I can test a select few mics independently before making a purchase. Things I need: - Matches with 416 style mics, but allows for growth into other brands. (Schoeps, Sanken and DPA are all on my radar) - Dependable RF shielding - Wide pickup for capturing group conversations - long reach for booming wide shots from a ladder - Moisture resistant - Indoor + outdoor use - Versatile in lots of applications; features, docs, commercial, interviews, VO, Foley/SFX Things I would like but don't need: - Over 20khz frequency response for sound design - Modular capsule system - Matching fig-8 for M/S recording Mics I'm considering and would like feedback on - Sennheiser Mkh-50 - Sennheiser Mkh-8050 (seems like it matches my wants and needs but hear lots of complaints from the 80xx series) - Rycote SC-08 - Audix - SCX1-HC (seems like a great plant mic that may work for interviews) Thank you -J
  3. Is this a fair comparison for boom work indoors but occasionally outdoors as well? Currently leaning more towards the MKH50 as I'm more familiar with it and its reach makes it versatile plus it has the pad and HPF switches. If I went with the KM185D it would be without DMI-2 box and direct into SD633 (or similar), so many of the advantages of the KM185D's DSP would be mostly lost (?). Kind Regards, Dan.
  4. I'm looking to purchase a good indoor mic for indie shoots. I'm considering the MKH50, but wanted to get the opinions from this forum on any experience you may have had with this mic. What other options do you recommend? Thanks! Darlene
