    Who knows just what you are shooting, so how can we make recommendations?

    I only use direct stereo for background recording.

    I do use a shotgun mic shock mounted on my camcorders for most synch sound, next radio mics, then boom mics--either shotguns or super-cardioids. On camera mic's need to be shock mounted, notice I said that twice.

    Oops, forgot to mention handheld mics, because I rarely use them; but there are times when they are the only solution. Usually interviews.

    One thing that you might find you need is a lapel mic for synched commentary, either wired or wireless work well for that.

    Not camera mountable but the new smaller blimp alot of pros are using:

    Rode's stereo video mics have a really nice sound. At least the pro one does. I haven't tried the svmx. But, if you use it on a camera you are operating, you are probably going to ruin the sound whenever you touch anything on the camera itself.

    There is another option for stereo mics and that is a mid/side shotgun mic. The AT BP4027 isn't a bad mic as a shotgun and if you record both the midside and the front channel to separate tracks, you can combine them in post if you decide you want a stereo ambience track rather than a directional track. It has it's limitations, but it is an option.
