Watched the hurricane coverage all day yesterday, and as calloused as it may sound, all I could think of was, "Man, I need one of those mics!"

Probably an Electrovoice RE-50. http://www.electrovoice.com/product.php?id=2612

"Extremely low handling noise via Dyna-Damp™ “mic in-a-mic” shock mount system"
"Impervious to wind noise and p-pops via its four- stage pop filter"
"Withstands high humidity, temperature extremes, and corrosive salt air"

It is essentially an EV RE-635A microphone insulated and filtered inside a separate outer shell.

Recording audio without metering and monitoring is exactly like framing and focusing without looking at the viewfinder.

As Richard said, almost certainly an EV RE50N, the go-to reporter stick mic for local/national news crews all over NA. They have amazing resistance to wind noise. If you're going to get one, get the RE50N/D-B which has higher output and therefore needs less preamp gain. Mine sounds fantastic, and in a pinch I can use it for a hammer. OK, just kidding there, but they are seriously rugged mics. I had mine dropped on a trade show floor in a crowd and trampled. Cleaned the foot prints off and it was good to go, sounds just as good as it did when it was new.

If you want an alternative, in Europe the Sennheiser MD 42 serves the same duty. That's the 42, not the 46.

Wow! I was expecting many hundreds of dollars, certainly not under $200!

Thanks guys!
