    Default the best external mic for under 100 ?

    As the title suggests, I'm after an external mic to fit a camcorder with a standard camera-shoe fitting and a 3.5mm jack. Also, a wind muffler would be required.

    Ive seen this one but was wondering if theres any others?

    Any recommendations would be very much appriciated.

    What do you want he mic to do? Different mics different jobs. From your example i presume you wnat a all purpose directional mike ?

    Sennheiser make a good one that can be had for just over 100 quid.

    Decnt mikes cost wads of cash, my sony c76 is/was 800 quid new i think and it is soooo much better than this AT short shot gun that was I think 150 ish new.

    I bought the Rode and am ambivilant about it's performance. The anti-shock system has limited benefits and although I only paid seventy quid ish for it from eBay, I think had I saved and invested a little more i would have been far more satisfied. The Rode has this bass rumble cut switch which doesn't really seem to do alot. I find it picks up alot of background noise. Overall about a 5 out of 10 for that one in my eyes. (or ears).

    Default sony mic - ECM_MSD1

    What does anyone think of this mic from Sony?

    I'm debating buying one to replace the cameras internal mic. Which leads me onto the next question I guess...

    Will there be a substantial difference between using the cameras mic and an external mic? Noise from the tape, zoom etc.

    Many thanks.
