I’m packing my bags for filming in the Galapagos Islands in December. That means I’m packing gear that, like the wildlife that Darwin discovered (and I’m looking forward to meeting), is adaptable to fast-changing environments. That’s why I just placed an order for one of these sweet looking mics, due to begin shipping in a week. Paired with my H1, this is the killer combo considering it doesn’t need phantom power. Bonus: the mic comes in a waterproof case. Sold!
