    Yeah, I love that about the Red Ranger body. It makes things more solid, but also cleaner and more compact. The functionality on the Ranger body compared to a Mini or Mini LF is pretty crazy, and...

    DPA is interesting, it sounds like a technically better mic, but perhaps misses some of the sparkle and silk of the schoeps. Notably in a very sublet way, when the DPA has the low cut and high boost...

    In this room with these voices, at that mic placement, I prefer the DPA 4018 with no filters. It seems to help tame the ssss and shhhh sounds. Except.......

    It certainly wasn't a test comparison that anyone should base their purchase on, haha.

    If I were to rate them by sound preference in these tests:

    When it comes to expense, something in how the CMC642 and Cmit5u can really do just about anything between the two mics.

    With Sennheiser, one could split between the KH40 and the MKH60, but the...

    Yeah, I should have been more careful, again, I was only meaning that the MKH50 is less susceptible to humidity by design, and I hope that I don't make it sound like the Schoeps is prone to humidity...

    But everyone that I know that has a Schoeps also has a back up, for when RF or humidty strike. So, in a shoot out for "The One", there are big points lost there.

    A big reason I am talking about the MKH50 as an on camera or "one" mic for a camera person, is:

    - tighter pattern
    - built in low cut and 10db pad
    - bullet proof
    - amazing humidity resistance
    -...
