I've saved up some money and I've been planning to get a mic for a while. I have about $700 to spend (this will also cover the purchase for the recorder, boom pole, and cable that will go with it) and I wanted to hear people's thoughts on what I should get.
I've been out of it for a little while but my previous research led me to believe that the Rode NTG4+ would be a decent entry level mic. Is there something better out now?
Also if you have something that is say $800 total but WAY better I'm willing to wait and save up more.
P.S. I've already got a DSLR (Rebel Cannon T2i) so for the time being I just want to get my audio setup going.
