While we generally recommend getting closer to the subject and using a dual-system solution to avoid recording the camera's noisy preamps, in many one-shooter, run-and-gun situations, that's not always possible. This video is designed to give you an idea of what some of these microphones sound like in such situations. We begin by listening to the poor audio recorded from the built-in mic on a DSLR, followed by examples of how six camera-mountable microphones sound, individually. The featured microphones include: Polsen SCL-1075, RØDE VideoMic Go, sE Electronics ProMic Laser, Sennheiser MKE 400, Shure VP83, and the Senal SCS-98.

Sennheiser is looking to expand its already considerable influence both in the ENG and studio worlds with the announcement of the Esfera Surround Microphone System and MK 8 Condenser Microphone. Looking to simplify 5.1 surround sound recordings, the Esfera system consists of the SPM 8000 stereo microphone and the SPB 8000 rack processor, which is used to decode the stereo source into 5.1 sound. The SPM 8000 microphone is composed of 2 RF condenser microphones arranged in an XY configuration, and includes a basket windshield, a pistol-grip suspension, and a hairy cover for additional wind-noise reduction. The SPB 8000 rack processor is designed to cater to your workflow; it can decode the stereo to 5.1 in real time or in post production. Additionally, it provides phantom power (which the SPM 8000 requires), has a selectable compressor, four directly selectable presets, and accepts both analog and digital signals for flexibility. For the project studio folks, the MK 8 large diaphragm condenser features a dual 24-carat gold-splattered one-inch diaphragm setup, allowing for a selection between 5 polar patterns. A 3-position low-cut/roll-off switch and a 3-position pad round out the MK 8’s adjustability. It was tuned for accurate but warm reproduction. The MK 8 is made in Germany and should be available in the late summer, 2014.
