I am looking into getting either the Sennheiser MKH70 or the Sennheiser 8070 Long Shotgun for Airshow interviews. I usually use my Sanken CS-3e for this situation, but last year, I decided to test out the Schoeps Cmit5u (performed much better than I anticipated). Both the Sanken and Schoeps do a wonderful job, but I feel something with a longer "reach" would be better suited for this task. The boom pole I am using is a K-Tek K-87CCR. Lavalier mics are not being considered at this time. Most of the shots showcase the featured aircraft behind the interviewee, thus being wider, requiring a longer "reach." Additionally, the surrounding environment is very noisy (groups of people, aircraft, vehicles, announcements, wind, etc...) The Blue Angels/C-17 interview (2nd video featured below) was a particular challenge and is an example of what I am hoping to improve. The blue angels interview was probably about 8' away and the C-17 was about 10' away. Most of the other interviews (featured in the 1st video) were an average of 3-5' from the talent. Thoughts on which microphone (MKH70 vs. 8070, or another long shotgun) is the better choice for this type of coverage? Last year's video: C-17 Video:
Hi all, I'm a proud owner or a Sennheiser 8070. Sounds great until it stops sounding great... I heard a low background noise on it, I wasn't sure if it was the atoms noise or what... I compared it to the MKH 60's. I have 2 of them and both sounded cleaner. Checked with a few COS-11 and they also sounded cleaner. My new mic had a fault! I sent it to repair and THEN I was told that there was a batch of faulty mics... I'm still on the process of getting it repaired or replaced. It would have been nice if it was recalled by Sennheiser... So if you have one of them and live in Australia AND it does not sound as you think it should, enquire about it.
