  1. Hi, I did research quite a bit but did not find anything close enough. Here's what I want: I'm a cameraman mainly doing documentaries. Rarely, there's a dedicated sound person/operator on set. Usually, there's me plus the director occasionally booming or recording additional non-sync sounds. I have a very simple AT875R mounted on my lightweight Pansonic AU-EVA1 setup. Audiotechnica calls it a ine + gradient pattern short shotgun mic. There's barely much low frequency response below 80 Hz. http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/cae8c23cfe000574/index.html I tested dozens of other on camera mics over the years on different cameras. In the end, I always returned to this dead cheap mic again. The simple reason is that I like its pretty natural, mildly warm sound and it's ruggedness. If there's a talent talking there'S of course another technique involved. Let it be booming or lav, depending on the situation. This is not the on-camera mic's duty. Now, I did work with other very nice cardioid or hyper cardoids like the Schoeps CCM series or Sennheiser MKH-40/50/60, MKH60. Yesterday I did some tests wuth a very interesting setup on camera. The CCM MK4 as mid plus a Kortwich Acht http://www.filmtontechnik.de/en/products-from-kortwich/microphone/ on top as side. I was never listening to such a natural and balanced Stereo on-camera setup. It is small and lightweight, too. I also have a AT BP4029 M/S shotgun, which i s often used for a wide atmosphere when the camera is on a tripod. I like it for what it is, but I thought I could have a better noisefree and more natural sound without a shotgun as mid signal. I thought of having a Sennheiser MKH 8040 incl. the MZW module as a mid/main mic adding a Kortwich Acht or Ambient Audio Emesser208 as side signal, when needed. Later I'll buy another MKH capsule with longer reach - be it the 8050 hyper or 8060 shotgun. Would this make a good combination for my needs and be a substantial upgrade from the A/875/ AT BP 4029 combo? Can it be handled on camera well enough?
