Testing the Limits of Our Microphones

This is an insanely quick and dirty test to find the limits of our gear and compare the Rode NTG-2, VideoMic Pro on 5DM3, and the Azden SGM1-X from various distances.

Recorded on Zoom H4N or on the 5DM3 as noted.

My conclusion: get the mic as close as possible.

I’m curious to hear the Sennheiser ME 66, ME67, and Rode NTG8 in a similar test.
