Recently I bought a 60D audio recorder and Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic.
I am wondering weather I need to buy a blimp/windhield as well and if its really necessary.
I am going to shoot both inside as well outside.
Also, If I have to buy it, should I get branded versions or 3rd party options would work just as well.
For example, I could buy a 3rd party option for $150
Or from a store the Rode Blimp only for $300.
