Comments about MXL FR-300 10" Shotgun Microphone:
Price, quality, results - I give it a nine, because it isn't the best microphone out there, but it is outstanding for budget film and music.
We had an entry to the 48 Hour Guerilla Film Competition and I offered to run sound. We'd been using onboard camera audio for a while (which I despised) so I was interested in separately recording the audio to Logic Pro using this shotgun attached to a boom. I was very impressed with the quality for the price of this microphone.
The results can be found on YouTube, "Spinners Two Filmingos" search. All the audio is captured from this microphone so you can really get a taste for the quality you can achieve. There has been minor compression and other plugins applied to it in Logic Pro, though.
Obviously the more you spend the better the quality (usually) with a mic, so this is really great for its price range. Accomplished exactly what I wanted.
