I am looking for a good microphone to film trains as they go by.
I have been looking, at the Opteka VM-200. But I am concerned that the shotgun directional characteristic will not work well, since I want to pick up the sound of the train coming in the distance.
But it seems like almost all camcorder external microphones are shotgun and directional, and quite commonly mono.
To make things even more confusing, I am looking for a low frequency response, to capture the rumbling low end.
In addition, it needs to fit a wind sock on it.
But most importantly, right now it are there any that are omni directional. I can't find one!!
