    Re: External stereo mic suggestions??

    I personally use a Sennheiser ME66 with power pack but more importantly do NOT use the cameras internal processing/amps, the results are poor, even with my D810, I always use a Tascam DR60D and record using that pre amp to the camera

    I use a small rifle mike on the camera and a 860 Mhz radio mic mixing the two with the Tascam DR 60.

    What was the problem with the recorder in the camera? I do not have a D810 but I do have a D800 and the S/N, frequency response and distortion measurements I did when I first got it impressed me, surely better than the typical mics used for video recording. Were you using the K6 adaptor, might have been a matching imbalance. It is an electret condenser that will work but too low a voltage from the mic jack of the camera, so needs the K6 for powering. It is also a 200 ohm termination z so maybe it loaded the mic input of the D810. The Me66 is a pretty good mic, one of the only short shotgun mics that are actual shotgun mics that have popped up in the video field. But shot guns are always a compromise in response and polar pattern so if one can use a conventional condenser or dynamic for fidelity and low self-noise.
