What's the most versatile microphone for a one man band?
I have around $600 dollars to purchase some basic audio equipment to shoot with.
I have used the Zoom H4N extensively, and it's extremely versatile. I'm wondering if you guys know of a smaller item that could do the essentials it can (including an XLR port).
I also am in need of a microphone. I am looking for something that could be used on a boom as well as on a shoulder camera rig, that can take batteries (no phantom power).
I generally shoot narrative-type commercials and PSA's, very little in studio and a lot out in the field. Any suggestions guys?
