Struggling to chose an External mic for Canon t4i
I'm a film student trying to decide on film equipment to improve the quality of my short films (and wedding videography) . I currently only have a Canon t4i and the kit lens.
I would really like to purchase an external mic, but have gotten a little lost in the online swath of reviews. Would you have a recommendation for a shotgun mic (preferably one that can be mounted on both the camera and a boom pole)?
I thought I had settled on the rode VideoMic pro, but the Sennheiser MKE 600 - Shotgun Microphone also looks quite nice. I don't have a massive budget, so I would like to stay under $400 if possible.
