I've used the Audio Technica AT875R for a while now, and for the money it's a superb mic. It does a great job of rejecting any sound which originates outside of the very directional pickup area. It really shines when it's about 2.5' or closer to the subject. When it's further than that the drop-off in level is noticeable.
It is quite a bit shorter than the other Audio-Technica shotgun mics I've used and that does have an impact on how close you need to be to your interviewee or the sound you're trying to capture. Also, like all shotgun mics, it is very sensitive. So if you're wanting to hold the mic while recording, I suggest purchasing a pistol grip shotgun mount so it doesn't capture your hand movements.
Overall, very happy and enjoy using this product.
IE: never, ever mount this or any other mics on a camcorder !
You will pickup background noise and echo.
Point the mic from above down in an angle to minimize the ambient noise and rear pickup. It all depends on your location and what you're recording. If you don't have an audio person or helper, you may have no choice but to mount it on the camera. You will not be happy with the result and it's not the mic fault.
I wish I had looked for something else that didn't need phantom power.
For my podcast, I have started doing interviews with musicians at the venue before shows. As you might guess, background noise is inevitable. This mic has allowed me to record decently clean audio that turns out high quality, regardless of background noise. It's small, light, and durable.
As far as cost goes, it's right on the money. Don't be tempted by the legendary Shure SM7B -- a few honest reviews out there stack this mic up favorably with it, and I've personally used both and choose the AT 875R. Get two of these instead of one of the Shures.
