Excerpt: Had a chance to use this microphone on set last week. Pumped it through a SD302 and didn't use any lavs since the actors were doing some pretty physical activity and we didn't want to lose $2,000 in lavs in a night.
Pros: Affordable, Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: Great microphone. Very directional. But what I really like about it is the low handling noise and I don't have to boost the gain through the roof to get a good strong sound. For the price I paid I would say it is one of the best ones I own at this price point.
Excerpt: As a professional sound recordist, I use this mic for film and TV shoots - mainly for voice recording but also for sound effects. I own a Schoeps CMIT5U (which I prefer), but I use the MKH60 as my second choice - and first choice when the weather is wet.
