I've done quite a bit of podcasting with an SM58.. Now, I'm doing videocasting, what's the best microphone to record sound? I want it to be more aesthetic: I don't want the microphone to be seen in the video -- I think that rules out dynamic microphones. It seems like a unidirectional condenser would be best? Any ideas of the best type of microphone to handle sound coming from a fixed direction, but preferably doesn't require obstructing the path of sight.
I've done some reviews, it seems like condenser microphones are really not made to be used more than 2 feet away from the sound source. They sound really over-gained and not isolated. I'm still undecided.
I found these videos to be useful:
In this video you can see the USB AT202 (which I imagine is not as good as my current sound set up)
shows the AT2020 in a similar application
In this video you can see the Sure SM93 in a similar setting. It's pretty unobtrusive and delivers an impressive result.
shows the Shure SM93 in a similar application.
Someone help me decide!
