Yesterday, I went with Caj and Katja to Härmälän Rotko which is located about 20 km North-West of Turku to test my Sennheiser MKE 600 on my Sony A7.
The Sennheiser KA 600 connected the microphone with the camera. I also had a Rycote Super Softie as a windjammer on my microphone. Between the microphone and the camera I had a Rycote Hot Shoe Extension and a Rycote InVision Video Mic shock mount suspension installed. The low-pass filter on the Sennheiser MKE 600 microphone was switched off. The lens on my camera was a Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2. Here you can find another example with my Sound Devices MixPre-3.
Sennheiser MKE 600
The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a shotgun microphone, which means that it can catch sound from a specific direction while lowering noise coming from the side. It can be operated by Phantom power from your camera or with a AA battery.
