Excellent video mic, voice recorindg AND orchestra recordings
After having tried out some other mics such as the the Rode NTG 2 and ME 66, I bought the MKE 600 for it is not as heavy as the ME 66 (with k6 system). I use the mic for video recordings and even for studio voice subbing. With just few frequency adjustiments it can keep up with most large diaphragm mics for the same price. I used the MKE 600 hanging for recording a theater play with orchestra and it worked just fine, although I would not recommend this for professional purposes, it it a decent and nice to have condenser for multi purpose use. The battery lasts forever. It would be nice if it came with a clip for mic stand though.
Perfect sound, not just for use as additional camera mic, but also as shotgun boom mic for film recording.
I've been using this microphone for half a year now and I've been very satisfied and also surprised about the quality. The sound is warm and Sennheiser-like (very good that is), having shotgun characteristics makes it easy to filter any outside unwanted noises. Been using it for my film academy's projects as well as my own ones and it never let me down. I reccomend the combination with Rycote AV softie kit - kit for every situation. And having the option of being powered by an AA battery (which still lasts - half a year!) - just great. Perfect buy.
