    No Room? No Problem!

    Let me just set an example real quick. The only place I could hide to get my audio on a film set was under a table curled up into a ball. Without the MKH70, I would've had to depend on my lavs only. I ended up getting better audio from the MKH70 than my lavs, while curled up in a ball under a table. This microphone is amazing.


    The range on this thing is incredible. I've had to tell people hundreds of feet away from me in my line of sight to be quiet. The noise floor on it is super low as well. Combine this with a good pre-amp and you're not gonna be worrying about cranking that gain up a little bit.


    It won't quite get the same love close range versus long range due to its length.


    Wide film shots, live venues, chasing your interviewee, or awkward boom/pistol positions.


    I would recommend this to a friend.
