I have been reading a bunch of threads here on Rode Video Mics, especially the great tests by CWildenradt in this thread, and I have a question.
In some interviews I am doing I want to get my mic off the top of my camera and closer to the subject using a 10 foot shielded cable. As I am alone, I won't have a boom operator and will simply use a boom mic stand.
Now for my question. Is it better to boom it ABOVE the subject and point the mic down, or would it be better to place it under the subject and point the mic up? And is 45 degrees about the right angle since it will be out of frame above or below?
