Field Solutions for Recording Audio
I will be (hopefully) shooting a short indie film summer 2015, and it will be my first film where much of the action takes place outdoors. I am currently drafting a budget for sound gear, but I wanted peoples opinion on several aspects of the sound recording:
1) Hypercardioid vs supercardioid for outdoor mic selection (or something else?)
2) Use of a Cloudlifter pre-amp to help with noise-free amplification.
3) Best portable recorder for field recording (ideally under $1k).
Thanks in advance!
