Directional mic...

The EX1 I rented did not come with a directional mic. I'm assuming I should go back and get one? I'm assuming the built in mic is not brilliant... Cheers.

I use an Audio Technica 4051a with a furry Lightwave windscreen. Supported by a Lightwave mic mount. Works great.

The later versions of the Lightwave windscreen has shorter fur, so if you're going to be working in gusty conditions I'd get a Rycote.

I also reinforced the Sony mic mount. It's very weak and guaranteed to break. Where the screws go through holes slender pieces of plastic. I beefed up the voids with fiber-reinforced epoxy when one of the mic mounts broke and neither have broken since then.
