It wouldn't be my first choice but yes it will do the job. Be sure you get some type of windscreen for outside use. Will you be connecting the mic to a mixer and then to a camera or to the camera directly? Adjusting levels on the camera while shooting causes lots of problems, get a mixer to go between the mic & the camera for better results on all fronts.
Yes I have a wind screen for it and yes I am putting it through a mixer and then onto camera - - Out of interest...what would be your first choice? And would this be your 2nd choice or how far down the line would it come??
