I'm looking to buy a nice shotgun for all purpose use (with my HV20). I continue to hear great things about the RODE Videomic, but I'm also considering the RODE NTG-2 as well. I would like to be able to do on camera use, and boom pole use. I figured if I opted for the Videomic I could buy the V-XLR adapter to allow me to do long runs into my Beachtek DXA-2s for boom pole use. Although,with the NTG2 no adapters are needed.
As far as appearance goes I don't have a DOF adapter, so I don't want the mic to overwhelm my poor HV20.
I would really love to hear some of your opinions.
Thanks in advance!!!!
