Great buddy on set for atmos
Marta Wiktoria 20.04.2021
This is my second 418s mike, the first one was unfortunately stolen from me.

I use this MS microphone usually in documentaries for simultaneous recording of dialog (M) and atmosphere (S) or in future film for atmosphere recording.

PROS:
- size (like normal mkh 416),
- comfort of using (stereo in the size and weight of traditional shotgun),
- durability (metal cover),
- stereo in MS (recording clear dialogs in M, I can decide in post how wide the stereo should be).

Cons:
- the side mike (S) has really high self-noise level,
- the 5-wire cable weigh quite much.

It is good to have it as an additional mike on movie set, but I would't record music on this.

Nicht ganz so rauscharm
Robert A. 711 23.11.2012
Leider ist das Mikro nicht so rauscharm wie der Rest der MKH-40 Serie. Vor allem die Seite hat ein beträchtliches Rauschen. Für Band/Musik-Aufnahmen unproblematisch, Aufnahmen von leisen Naturgeräuschen hingegen schwierig. Ansonsten ein Topmikro. Schade auch, dass es keine Bassabsenkung/Pad hat.
