    I didnt think picking out a mic for my camera would be this difficult. I have 2 in mind audio technica pro 24, and the azden SMX-10 they are similar in price but the azden doesnt come with the wind screen i would want so i would need to buy that. But then i found this nice more expensive (Rode videomic pro) mic on ebay. Right now the price on it is do able for me but i cant pick which one i want to go with.


    Edit- I just ordered the Azden SMX-10 mic. It should be here buy the end of the week. Ill post up pictures once i get it.

    Sweet that's good to know. Do you guys have a furry wind screen on them? If so what kind?

    This past year I upgraded from a Audio Technica Pro to a Sennheiser. OMG that was literally the best upgrade I made. Well worth the money.
