My friend and I are starting a small documentary and we're looking for a recorder/mixer and a good microphone that would be sturdy enough to cope with heat and humidity. Our budget is 5000$. There's only one person at a time on screen and two mics for the interviewer and the interviewee. But ideally we'd like to add 3 more mics.
We had a look at the Zaxcom and 4minx features. We like the Zaxcom which is cheaper and the NeverClip function as well as the 137db dynamic range of its preamps. But if we buy the zaxcom I don't think we'll have enough money to get a decent mic. We'd like to have your opinions.
Thanks a lot for your help :)
